Notes about this historic site

1 Mill Fields (opposite Manor Farm from estate map 1748/81). Medieval (or later). Post mill. SP432848.
2 Seaby gives the above grid reference, but the 1844 tithe map shows three fields (Mill Field, Little Mill Field, Far Greater Mill Field) which are centred N of this at about SP432851 and undoubtedly refer to the same mill.
3 A mill existed in the parish in 1594. A ‘Mill Field’ survives to the N of the village, the name applying to a more extensive area in 1748, but the site, rising to 124m, could only have been occupied by a windmill.
