Allso slaughter gate ..and I believe peacemarsh ..I did read something about there being a peace treaty being signed there ...could he wrong tho

Hence peacemarsh

And did you know that Cnut died in the abbey at Shaftesbury at the age of about 40,and the dead soldiers of the battle buried in a barrow beside Longburry lane at a place still called Slaughtergate. which is at the end of Wavering lane ,named due to the wavering to and fro of the battle before a treaty was signed in a building called the retreat which is still in Peacemarsh.which gave Peacemarsh its name. If you drive along the road into the forest at Penselwood , you will drive through the barracks where the army assembled, still very visible today.

Forgot to mention that Cnut out lived Edmund and became sole king of England.
