Following Cilla Yarwood's enquiry, published yesterday, about Butterley Heys Farm, Celia Bloor of the Audlem District History Society has written to say: "I have replied direct to the enquiry but I thought your readers might be interested. The name Butterley Heys is recorded from 1130 and is mentioned in the Foundation Charter of Combermere Abbey 1133 but not necessarily a house there."

"The present building is considered to date from about 1608 but as it is a moated site I would guess there was an earlier building much as they found on the moat platform at Northwoods nearby. It is a listed

building and the name means an enclosure of good land."

"I have a card file of people, dates and farm/house names so it is fairly simple to check what has been noted so far for this type of query."
