Site of Possible Mill 400m S of Stoney Thorpe Hall

Description of this historic site

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.

Notes about this historic site

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.
