Ibstock glebe terriers
Coal mining and clay extraction have shaped the size and character of present day Ibstock. Probate inventories for this parish can now be found on VCH Explore
Glebe terriers provide details of the land owned by the church (the glebe), used to support its ministry in the parish. Before enclosure, this land lay as strips scattered across the open fields of the parish. Glebe terriers can therefore provide topographical information about the parish. Some can also set out local customs, for example in respect of tithes.
