Hi Val & LIsters !

Most of these do not ring any bells with me, but I think you will
find that
Much Bardfield is an old name for Great Bardfield ? - I read it
not long ago, but cannot remember exactly where ? I think that Little
Bardfield also had an alternative earlier name ?

Best Wishes ! Roger.
