Notes about this historic site

1 A mill at Willoughby is recorded in 1215.
3 This may be the watermill of ‘Kelelismulne’ taken up under Wolfhampcote (see PRN 2943) which in 1333 was given by Godfrey Halewy to Robert de Wilewys ‘together with all other lands and tenements he held at Wileby’. From the text it is impossible to say if the mill was in Willoughby or Wolfhampcote.
