Loveden Wapentake

Wapentake is the Danelaw equivalent to the "Hundred" in Anglo-Saxon England and is a political district, a collection of local parishes, the main subdivisions of a county.  The court is likely to have met monthly, at Loveden Hill.  The word Wapentake means "show your weapon". The idea was that all in favour of a resolution would raise their sword etc. to show agreement.

The Domesday Book (1086) lists the following places in Loveden Wapentake:
