Ashlett Creek
Ashlett Creek
Ashlett Mill is a well known local landmark of considerable interest. It now serves as an attractive meeting and club house of the Waterside Sports and Social Club and the Ashlett Sailing Club, complete with bar, skittle alley, shooting range and billiards tables. However, it has a long history. It has seen centuries of service in its original purpose of milling corn, and when that came to an end with corn being milled more conveniently and economically with electrically or engine driven machinery, it served as a hostel for labourers engaged in the building of the first Fawley refinery in 1920-21. The present mill house bears the date 1816, and the initials 'T.B.' on a stone set into the wall of the Calshot side of the building. It is certain, however, that a mill existed at Ashlett much earlier than this. Tide mills have been known to exist in southern England from early Medieval times, and it seems likely that there has been a mill in the locality from the beginning of the 13th century. Some evidence comes from Esso Petroleum Company records of the refinery land purchased from the Cadland Estate. In the year 1241 Cadand Manor was owned by Eva de Clinton, the widow of a Norman knight. For some unknown reason she decided to give it, lock stock and barrel to the Abbot of Titchfield. In the records there is a copy of an extract from the Dugdale Monasticon of 1317-1318 confirming this gift. Eva, daughter of Roger de Escures, gave to the abbot and canons of St Mary of Titchfield "of all the manor of Cadeland with mills and all its appurtenances". In another confirmation of the same gift, there is this similar wording - ".. in the aforesaid lands, possessions, mills, salt pans, court and all appurtenances..". This is thought to refer to a mill at Ashlett, and if so it was probably a tide mill working on the same principle as that of the existing mill in its working days. Certainly the technical requirements of tide mills were known in those days. R. Wailes, a Civil Engineer, and the expert on tide-mills recorded in the 1930s that the tide mill at Woodbridge in Suffolk was first mentioned in the year 1170, and pointed out a reference in the Domesday Book to what appears to have been a tide mill at Dover. "At the entrance to the port of Dover is a mill which carries disaster to vessels by the great disturbance of the sea, and so causes the greatest damage to the King and his men...". Whether or not such an early mill existed, there is no question that a mill was working at Ashlett in the 17th century. The mill is referred to regularly between the years 1660 and 1680 in the Fawley Parish Records (now at Winchester); the property is mentioned there in connection with ratings exacted upon it. The County Archive office, has a reference from the Winchester Bishopric Pipe Roll of Fawley for 1605 which almost certainly referred to Ashlett. It records that "Nicholas Lambert pays a rent of five shillings for one corn mill." Later rent rolls for the Bishopric manor of Fawley include a quit rent of five shillings for Ashlett Mill. There is a further reference in Esso's archives in a record of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners' "Fines of Lands" for 1694 "..and of 3/4 of Henry Yongs for one toft or parcel of land where formerly stood a mill with a course in the tithing of Fawley called Ashfleete Lake.." Whether this means that the 17th century mill had been pulled down, or whether the entry refers to a previous mill, perhaps adjacent to a then existing mill is not clear. Physical evidence of earlier mills is shadowy. The initials "T.B." on the south wall of the mill are those of Thomas Barney, of Beaulieu, who has been described as a merchant, a salt maker and a miller. He owned the mill as well as the nearby saltworks at the beginning of the nineteenth century. He sold the saltworks and saltings - and almost certainly the mill to Andrew and Robert Drummond in 1830. The mill continued in operation until well into the present century - probably it closed down about 1910. An historian of tide mills, R. Wailes, rightly suggested that there were two water wheels each driving two pairs of stones. The gearing has long been dismantled and although fifty years ago a number of people could remember seeing the millstones in the 1920s, later only two of the stones were known to exist. One in a garden in Ashlett Road and one in a garden at Norley Wood. After the mill shut down, it served variously as dwellings (it was made into flats), as a boathouse, and as a store. There were people living there when Agwi bought the building in 1920 as part and parcel of the land for the first Fawley Refinery. Tenants remained there until late October of that year when the mill was quickly stripped and cleared of as many obstructions as possible and some 80 camp hospital type beds were installed on the first floor. Underneath, on the ground floor, communal ablutions and cooking fac

20/5/11 Sneaky Lolly - I took three of the special guys out to shop for some classroom supplies I thought might be helpful if I bought like exercise books, pencils, paint brushes and the like. It was part of the new timetable I had helped to prepare which included learning about shopping and money. I got a liittle amount of supplies, the most expensive items being a ream of copy paper and sets of fifty felt-tip pens, both of which were 115 ruppees or about ?1.50. Amazingly a large exercise book was only 16 ruppees or 10 pence - bargains all. However I wanted to get some watercolour paints - the ones that come in large bottles that are used in playgroups and lower schools, the ones that are cheap, come in just a few colours and are perfect for little kids to use for everyday fun painting and finger painting etc. I can't find such a thing anywhere and nobody seems to know what I mean when I ask in shops, all I get offered is tiny little pots of paint that, although not terribly expensive, run out very quickly in a classroom full of the special guys. I shall carry on searching as I've heard of a manufacturer's artists paint supplies shop that may have or at least be able to order in what I'm looking for. All three pupils were well behaved when we were out, the sensible, older Geetu making sure I got the right stuff and being like an older sister to the younger ones, Moona and Shivam, who quietly and patiently waited by my side in the shop and automatically carried everything for me. As a reward and because I wanted to spoil them just a little bit I offered to buy them an icecream which resulted in the younger two jumping and laughing excitedly at the prospect, a delightful and and unthinking response to such a little gesture. I saw a shopkeeper friend I have made and asked him where to get icecreams but none were to be had so not wanting to let them down now I had promised we searched onwards and in the back of a little shop found a freezer with a few lollies in. We sat down the gali or alleyway to eat them before returning to school as I was sure to be in trouble for buying icecreams when we were supposed to be learning about shopping but, hey, buying icecreams is still shopping. Went out in the evening with the sisters I live with and their mad French friend and after a false start at a venue to crowded we eventually found somewhere with seats to have a drink. The music was a bit loud for conversation as we were sat right by a speaker but a pleasent enough blend of Europop and Indianpop with a clubbing bass beat. Drinks were bought to the table by staff so no ugly bar pushing to be had and we soon relaxed enogh to get up and have a dance, I was even shown to the toilet by a staff such was the service even if it wasnt a really top notch place but quiet ordinary however this is the type of service expected when you go out even if it is a bit misplace sometimes when confusion arises as old India meets modern. We met a friend there who was a ships captain, just returned from five months at see who had a few interesting stories to tell like any proper seafarer should have. He had been captian of a container ship but only a small one this time, he said, just two thousand containers capacity which sound huge to me but last time he was out it was a seven thousand containers ship. The life of a merchant seaman has changed he said, no longer do they get to stay in ports for a couple of weeks for loading and unloading and the resulting shananigans but turn around is quick and very often they are not aloud off ship or anybody onboard either so no fun to be had. This he explained was since 9/11 as so many countries now had huge security worries so no longer a girl-in-every-port is an unforeseen and unheard consequence of the worlds troubles. Strange how these things affect people lives in subtle but experience changing ways. He was a very nice guy, friendly and warm, and then as we went to leave he sorted our bar bill for us without any flourish or fuss or anything, with a wave of a hand saying he had worked for five months now he was going to play for months until his money ran out then back to sea and that life again. I asked where he learned his trade and turns out it was right here in New Delhi which must a thousand miles from the sea at least.
