Notes about this historic site

1 The mill was first recorded in Domesday but is not heard of after 1291. The site of the mill may be indicated by signs of interference in the course of the river. At one point Wasperton village street forks, ending at the cottage named ‘Tandy and Withard’. It is possible that this was originally the track to the mill.
2 In 1086 there was a mill at Wasperton which yielded 20s and 4 loads of salt and 1000 eels yearly.
