GV II Fence. Probably early C19. Limestone slabs, squared and placed on edge in a row, c.one metre high. These large slabs, known as planks, were quarried locally for use in fences, stiles, door hoods, and floors, and form a distinctive feature of the village. Similar slab fences were noted by Robert Plot in his "Natural History of Oxfordshire", 1677.
