Sveinn Worth marker
Sveinn Worth marker
'Worth, Sveinn had 2 carucates of land taxable; 2 ploughs possible there Value before 1066, 20s. Woodland Pasture. 6 furlongs long and 3 wide.'

This marker is on an off-cut from the Trans-Pennine Trail and reproduces text from the Domesday Book. The carucate was a unit of assessment for tax used in most Danelaw counties of England. The carucate was based on the area a plough team of eight oxen could till in a single annual season. It is nominally regarded as 120 acres (490,000 m2). Hence 2 carucates are about 0.375 square miles (240 acres). In addition, the woodland pasture is about 0.319 square miles (200 acres).
