Newbury was a town in the north-eastern Buckland, to the north of Crickhollow and next to The Hedge.[1]

Etymology

Bury, from the Old English burh, means "fortified enclosure".[2] This, combined with Newbury's proximity to The Hedge, perhaps suggests that Newbury was built as a more recent guard against intruders from the Old Forest.
