Tudhoe, where Charles Waterton spent his first, not always happy, years at a Roman catholic school. Once a village, Tudhoe has seen much building development since Waterton's days. The map above shows Tudhoe in the 21st century. Despite the ravages of time, the area around the green is still very pleasant and agreeable. The church depicted on the map is St Charles' Roman Catholic Church.

The White Horse public house referred to by Waterton is not shown on this map, produced during his life time, but many years after his schooldays. The pubs shown are the George & Dragon (now the Green Tree) and the Black Horse. It seems possible that the Green Tree is the same inn referred to by the Squire, being close by to the school and village pond.
