Notes

The NGR is a place among various place-names containing the element "Park", inferred to represent "the park of Sundrum", the location of a chapel of St Brigit mentioned in a number of 14th century records. (capelle Sancte Brigide iuxta parcum de Sundrome). There is in fact an earthwork at this NGR, but it is probably earlier than the church would have been. DDSMS which gives the records in question erroneously places the chapel in AYP, when in fact it (and Sundrum estate generally) is in COY.
