Binley Woods - Monks' Gallows
Referred to as "Bilne" in early records, the village of Binley had, at the time of the Norman Conquest, woods that were 'half a mile long and a furlong broad'. In the time of Edward I there were two windmills and a watermill.
The monks of Coombe Abbey had a gallows here and a courthouse.
