    • These are the boundaries of the land at Murcott. First along a certain stream straight to Braydon Brook, and along Braydon Brook straight to the broad willow-tree. And from that point straight by the slade and by south flax-clearing, that is, to the acre’s breadth. And from flax-clearing to the middle of the foxhole, that is, in the middle [translating Old English ‘middeweard’], and from that to the pit, and from the pit to (?) Poha’s wood or clearing, that is, in the middle. And from that to urd wood or clearing, and straight along the boundary to the ditch [or ‘dyke’] which is called dic, and from that to oak wood, and from oak wood to the southern part of the vill [i.e., Crudwell].
