The Pound Field.

The Pound Field.
There has been quite a lot of conversation as to what is and what is not the area called The Pound. Today that whole area is still called the pound and has nothing to do with The Moor at all. The stream that crosses The Moor is called The Fleet, and the causeway bridge is known as The Fleet Bridge.
The map above is circa 1842, way before the GWR railway was laid in 1853 as a branch line from Maidenhead to High Wycombe.
