Coppice (1)

A small wood between Marsh Hill Farm and Longcroft Farm


Coppice (1) (Parcel 1102) was a small wood situated between the fields of Marsh Hill Farm to the north and Longcroft Farm to the south. A coppice is an area of woodland in which the trees or shrubs are periodically cut back to ground level to stimulate growth and provide firewood or timber.

The 1846 Tithe Apportionment recorded that Coppice (1) was owned by Lord of Kingston Manor, William Jones Prowse, who had inherited huge land holdings in the area. It was not let to a tenant, but 'occupied' by Prowse himself since the timber of the woodland provided a long-term investment. The Apportionment described it as a wood measuring 0a 1r 17p.

Coppice (1) (Parcel 1110) was bounded to the north by Smoke Acre Orchard (Parcel 1113), to the east by West Leaze (Parcel 1103) and to both south and west by Footpath Ground (Parcel 1101).
