Abstract:
The growth of settlement from prehistoric times to the present day is traced from documentary, topographical and place-name evidence. Pre-conquest evidence is scanty, but the extent of Saxon woodland is suggested and the importance of the forest emphasised. The Domesday settlement pattern is reconstructed and may be the result of colonisation from two original centres. Between 1086 and 1350 settlements multiplied, a new open field system appeared, and forest and downland was vigorously assarted and enclosed. 1350 seems to represent the high-water mark of expansion. The reasons for, and chronology of, the subsequent marked retreat of settlement are uncertain, but the Black Death was not its direct cause. Other reasons are considered. Post-medieval trends included an increase and concentration of population, continuing enclosure of the open fields, renewed assarting, and a multiplication of country houses and dispersed farmsteads. Six maps illustrate the main stages of settlement. AH
