- None recorded
Type and Period (2)
- SETTLEMENT? (10th Century to 18th Century - 900 AD to 1799 AD?)

An article tracing the 10th century boundary of the Manor of Winslow notes that three destinations are joined by the 'Street' - Heortmere, Heorthill and Stapelum. The name 'Staple' survives in the name of Staples Farm and the junction of the Roman road with other tracks at 'Staples Corner'. The word staple can refer to a raised platform in olde English and the junction is also known as 'Deadman's Corner' because it is the traditional place for a gallows (another defintion given for staple is gallows post). The Street appears to have gone out of use by the time of enclosure suggesting that these settlements were no longer no existence (1).
