Medieval watermill, Long Itchington.

Description of this historic site

The possible site of a Medieval watermill, which may be one of two mills recorded in the manor in the Domesday survey. Stone footings on the north side of the river are still visible. The site is 100m south east of the Cricket Ground at Long Itchington.

Notes about this historic site

1 Two mills are recorded at Long Itchington in 1086 (See also WA 1644).
2 It is probable that one of these mills would have been situated in the main vill and Whitehall Farm DMV (WA 1634) would be a likely candidate. Here stone footings on the north side of the river seem to indicate the existence of an undershot watermill rather than a bridge, as there is no evidence of an abutment on the southern side.
