ASHPRINGTON SX85NW PAINSFORD 6/50 Rabbit Warren Walls Immediately South East of Painsford Mill

II

Rabbit warren boundary walls. C18 or much earlier. Local dressed slate rubble walls enclosing an irregular field on the hillside which drops down to a meadow to the north. The walls on the east and west ends are most complete. Here they are coursed horizontally inspite of being built on a steep slope and rise to about 1.75 metres high and have their original copping which has a slate course cantilevered out on the inside to prevent the rabbits from escaping. The south wall at the top of the slope has its top courses missing and is breached at the centre. The north wall at the bottom in the meadow has been reduced to less than half its original height. In the north east corner there is a disused small quarry from which the slate must have been obtained. A conveyance of 1801 mentions the rabbit warren and the building of the bridge immediately north ((qv) Bridge about 75 meters south east of Painsford Mill), therefore the rabbit warren was definitely in existence in 1801. Source: Information from the owner of Painsford Mill (1987).
