Using historical maps and local knowledge the Leap in the Park project has been able to identify the line of the pale in the modern day landscape. In many places the ditch is still very visible, in others it has been flattened or built over. The actual walls and hedges we see today will not be the originals from the 14th century, however in most places the boundaries still have a use in the landscape today.
Place names (click the flagged place names on the map) also help us to make that link with the past when Leagram was a grand deer park.
If you have been inspired by this story – why not take a walk along the pale.
