Notes / History In addition to grazing rights, those granted access to the Common were also entitled to supplies of wood.

Quantities were carefully regulated with each tenant authorised to cut three cart loads of trunks, or branches from pollarded (pruned) trees, over eight feet in height. The wood must be for their own use and must not be sold for profit.

Between November 30th and March 25th, those with entitlements could also collect brushwood to use for winter fuel.
