Notes about this historic site

1 There was a mill at Wixford in 1086, which belonged to the Abbey of Evesham in the 12th century. It had certainly fallen out of use by the 18th century, and no traces remain today.
2 There is no mill here now, but the traces of one can be clearly distinguished in a field between Wixford Bridge and Moor Hall.
3 A semicircular earthwork at SP0854 is unlikely to have been associated with the mill. No other earthworks are evident between Wixford Bridge and Moor Hall.
