Castle Hill Local Nature Reserve 9293

Introduction

The site is now managed as a local nature reserve. Earthworks here are believed to be the remains of a medieval hunting lodge that was at the northern end of a medieval deer park owned by Merton College, Oxford, so-called after William Merton, Lord of the Manor, who had enabled poor scholars to go to Oxford University.
