The components of a burgage plot

The visual below illustrates the components of a deep burgage plot of the medieval period. Burgage plots vary in size and form but this describes a primary 'parent' plot with access to both street and back lane, medially divided into three long plots with detail added to the central of the three. There is more on the division of plots here. This is further explained in the second visual below - a plan and elevation with further terms applied to components and features. A glossary of terms can be found here for further explanation of the terms.
