Once stood a large conical thatched deer shelter on the southern edge of the heather filled plain, where root vegetable and hay were left to feed the forest deer. During the 1940's a bush fire destroyed it and so the structure and its function became memorialised in the name of the area. Today the area is a plain of beautiful grasses, scattered with old beech pollards, young birch and areas of struggling heather and ferns.
