Bogle Wood 1900 x 1949 OS 6 inch 2nd revision

Sc or SSE bogle + Sc or SSE wood

‘Ghost wood’. A local tradition states that a witch was burned near Boglehill Wood and (in consequence?) little would grow in the field where it happened.[55]

    OS Pathf. also shows Boglehill Wood at NO34 10, while in the mid-nineteenth century NSA mentions lime quarrying at Bogle Hill (p. 559). The two woods run into one another, and there is no doubt that the eponymous bogle of Bogle Wood and Bogle Hill refers to the same supernatural being.
