These are the names of two coppices on the Common now almost indistinguishable from one another, lying north east and east of the great loop of the drive at the north-west corner of the Common. Big Mogshed lies north and north west of the ornamental lake and abuts onto the Drive. Little Mogshed abuts on to the streamlet south of the culvert at the north-west extremity. The name (properly ‘mogshade’) signified a moist ('muggy') shelter for grazing animals.
