Description

An article tracing the 10th century boundary of the Manor of Winslow notes the estate map of Salden shows the junction of two streams in an area generally known as 'Demoran'. Damoran was the name of one of Winslow's open fields systems and was spelt Deneburgham or Denburnham in the 13th century and Damerham in 1599. The instructions for following the boundary refer to 'Ditchpool' which persists in further documetary references as Dike pool, Dikepole and Dykepool suggsting a man-made watercourse. The stream also flows through a furlong called 'Damerham Salde' leading to the conjecture that it was the source of water for the hamlet of 'Deneburgham'. The watercourse is not largely piped (B1).
