Notes about this historic site

1 There was a mill in 1086 and an isolated reference to 2 mills occurs in 1370. Coughton mill, which stood by the Arrow, SE of the Court, was pulled down within living memory and traces of it can still be seen.
2 Information exists on ownership for the 19th century. The mill is marked on the 1886 OS map as disused and seems to have been demolished early this century. At the site the watercourses are still intact, but of the buildings only foundations remain.
3 Photographed in 1978.
