Notes about this historic site

1 This was probably on the site of at least one of the two mills in Stoneleigh recorded in the Domesday Survey. By the 16th century there were six mills in the area, and it is difficult to establish which stood on this site. In the 18th century, only two mill sites remained. One stood here, and the other was on the Avon, near Stoneleigh Abbey [PRN 2899]. The latter had disappeared by 1830. Stoneleigh Mill was demolished before 1886. Only the watercourses remain today.
