Notes about this historic site

1 There are bridges across the Itchen east to Marton, and across the Leam north to Princethorpe, and west to Wappenbury. This last named bridge crosses by Eathorpe corn mill, the pond of which was famous in the early C19 for its eels. In 1086, the mill contributed 6s 8d to the value of the manor at Wappenbury.
2 In 1584 there were two mills (i.e. in Wappenbury and Eathorpe, so presumably Eathorpe Corn Mill was one of these). No location for this mill was even hinted at, and no further reference to it could be found. However, a possible siting for the mill is described on card WA 2991.
