click for feature map
Parks Parks, on John Norden's map, are shown by a ring of fence palings; for examples, there are several around Basingstoke. Many of parks have a house symbol inside, and might include a tree or more. Trees are placed in parks with some thought, not just decoratively. The house or park might be labelled

Making a park, the formal procedure of emparkment, was a privelege granted by the Crown. Many of the parks shown on early maps were emparked in the 12th-14th centuries. Parks on the map are listed below.

Parks, where possible, have been identified with a location, mostly a park, on a modern map. The modern park name is a label to identify the location and may not exist as a current place name.
