Site of Possible Mill 400m S of Stoney Thorpe Hall
This may be the site of the watermill at Southam recorded in the Domesday survey. The mill did not survive the Medieval period, but a possible watercourse is still visible as an earthwork. The site lies 200m north east of Thorpe Bridge.
1 In a field known as Mill Pits, the River Itchen makes a sharp loop. The loop has been cut by what appears to be an artificial leet, thus creating a small island. It is suggested that this is the site of the mill mentioned in Domesday, but which was laid waste in 1410. No other site in Southam is obvious.
