    • These are the boundaries of Rodbourne. First from the place which is called Rodbourne to fair thorn-tree. And from that thorn straight along the stream by short wood, and thus by the crossways to sand [or ‘gravel’] way. And from that way to short grove, and along short grove to the willow-bed, and from there to the heathen burial, or buriwelle, and from there on to Rowden (Hill). And thus over Rowden, and from that hill to the wild-iris bed on beue down, and from that place to Gauze Brook. And along Gauze Brook to the Avon, and along the Avon to waterfowl pool, and from waterfowl pool to the rith bourne [i.e., Rodbourne], and from that to the starting-place, that is, fair thorn.
