Mill Green, Hertfordshire

Mill Green is today a small hamlet, lying at c. 60m OD either side of the river Lea c. 3km north-east of Hatfield in Hertfordshire. Mill Green has no church, and its only claim to medieval antecedence comes from the presence of the eponymous mill, now a museum. Most of the surviving fabric of this structure is 18th century, although some 16th century timberwork is visible inside the building (Kirby, 1990). No earlier fabric is known, but the present building is generally considered to occupy the site of a medieval mill, one of four held by the abbot of Ely at Hatfield in Domesday Book. The extent of any medieval occupation was completely unknown before the HEFA investigation over the last two days of November 2005.
