The plague pit
The plague pit
As it is known locally is an open piece of land between the houses of the estate. The houses were built in the 1930's and at that time many Anglo Saxon burials were found in the area. Excavations of this land revealed 'shovelfuls' of bones which possibly indicated disease and hasty burial in a pit.
