Thunor's Pit

  • O.G.S.C.
Hide All

1 These actually represent the course of the boundary between the arable fields of the parishes of Garlinge and Acol, before its alteration in recent times. The course marked by Thomas of Elmham is very accurate and may be plotted from his map to the 6-inch map without difficulty. It may be conjectured that this boundary-line had been in dispute, and that it was itself the real cause of the map being drawn.

2 Now Alland Grange.

3 Historia Monasterii S. Augustini Cantuariensis, by Thomas of Elmham; edited by Charles Hardwick, Rolls Series, 1858. The account quoted is on pp. 207,208. On the facsimile (Historia, frontispiece) Thunor’s pit is the oval dark mark; the round mark is merely a grease spot (now removed) which has been unintelligently copied.

4 I am indebted to Captain M.W. Hilton Simpson, of Sole Street, for this identification; the name will be restored at the next revision of the large scale O.S. maps of the district.
