There is also reference to a water mill in 1316, and a document recording holdings passed to the Manor in 1601 listed two water mills, a fulling mill and another mill. By 1819, there were two water wheels at the Longbridge mill, which powered four pairs of grinding wheels. By the end of the Second World War, the mill was producing animal feed, and continued to use water power until 1950. Commercial operation of the mill ceased in 1977, and it was damaged by fire in 1991. Restoration of the damaged building began soon afterwards, and was completed in 1997. Since then the mill has been operated on an occasional basis by the Hampshire Mills Group, and is used to grind flour on open days. The building dates from the seventeenth and early nineteenth centuries, and is a listed building. The mill at Stanfordend, to the north of Stratfield Saye Park, has been disused since the 1930s. Power was generated by the use of three turbines, rather than a water wheel.

The Interactions between Sediments and Water

This book focuses on sediments as a pollutant in natural freshwater and marine habitats, and as a vector for the transfer of chemicals such as nutrients and contaminants. Sediment-water research is carried out all over the world within a variety of disciplines. The selected papers cover three main topics relating to assessment and/or restoration of disturbed watersheds, sediment-water linkages in terrestrial and aquatic environments and evaluation of sediment and ecological changes in marine and freshwater habitats. Innovative research in both developed and less developed countries is included. Both fundamental research, insight into applied research and system management are covered. The volume will also appeal to readers involved in sediment geochemistry and dynamics, aquatic habitats, water quality, aquatic ecology, river morphology, restoration techniques and catchment management.

Groundwater Resources Modelling

A Case Study from the UK

The UK is a country with over 150 years of widespread exploitation of its principal aquifers for public water supply. Increasing demands, greater awareness of environmental pressures and more exacting legislation has heightened the need for quantitative models to predict the impacts of groundwater use. In the UK this has culminated in a unique national, regulator-led programme for England and Wales to develop conceptual and numerical models of the principal bedrock aquifers. The outcomes of this programme will be of interest to the international hydrogeological community, particularly as international legislation such as the European Water Framework Directive requires management of water issues across administrative boundaries with a varied cast of stakeholders. The collection of papers provides a contrast between practitioner- and research-based approaches to assess and predict the anthropogenic impacts and environmental pressures.

King Arthur's Wars

‘King Arthur’s Wars’ describes one of the biggest archaeological finds of our times; yet there is nothing new to see. There are secrets hidden in plain sight. We speak English today, because the Anglo-Saxons took over most of post-Roman Britain. How did that happen? There is little evidence: not much archaeology, and even less written history. There is, however, a huge amount of speculation. ‘King Arthur’s Wars’ brings an entirely new approach to the subject. The answers are out there, in the countryside, waiting to be found. Months of field work and map study allow us to understand, for the first time, how the Anglo-Saxons conquered England; county by county and decade by decade. ‘King Arthur’s Wars’ exposes what the landscape and the place names tell us. As a result, we can now know far more about this ‘Dark Age’. What is so special about Essex? Why is Buckinghamshire an odd shape? Why is the legend of King Arthur so special to us? Why don’t Cumbrian farmers use English numbers when they count sheep? Why don’t we know where Camelot was? Why did the Romano-British stop eating oysters? What does this have to do with Napoleon’s Ulm campaign of 1805, or the Prusso-Danish War of 1864? ‘King Arthur’s Wars’ tells that story.

Britain’s Game Fishes

Celebration and Conservation of Salmonids

Game fishes, particularly those of the salmon family, are critical indicators of the health of those ecosystems upon which we now know we are dependent. As the authors of this important environmental book argue, “Our game fishes [then] serve as more than merely an indicator of healthy waters. Instead, they can be regarded as iconic of the ecosystems in which they occur.” Moreover, “the quality requirements of different types of fish population have formed the backbone of a great deal of water management in the UK, Europe and the USA over several decades.” With sections on how and why Britain’s game fishes are under pressure from changes in land use, agriculture, housing needs, etc. – and their concomitant pollution effects – this book assesses how our knowledge of these game fishes reflect the changing values we place on our surrounding wildlife.

Stanley Blackster had once been a hero to his son Gram, back in the days when he right as usual - he'd let things drift. But now Insidiator was to be screened again, and he would take decisive action. A family expedition to the fabled paradise islands of the Papalinas would surely put things right. The Barracuda had long wanted to visit this place from his past, and he would at last dive on a coral reef with Gram. Certain firmly submerged incidents were becoming restless, but the Blacksters would not be straying from the sun, the sand and the surf. Tsaramaso Atoll would be at a safe range of several hundred sea miles and Stanley would make sure it stayed that way. Of course he would. Even now Tsaramaso was a place undiscovered by the world, a place of mangrove forest and steaming heat, of reptiles and sharks, of teeming reef fishes and sweating black nights, ancestral home of the malevolent Boniface clan and their old, eerie notions of power. The very last place for a family holiday.

Fishing the River of Time

At age eighty, Tony Taylor journeys from Sydney, Australia, to British Columbia to fish the Cowichan River with his eight-year-old grandson, Ned. The trip is an opportunity for Tony to return to a landscape that has had a profound effect on his life and his way of thinking, and to share this place with his grandson. As Tony teaches Ned the patient art of fly-fishing, a lifetime of memories, thoughts, and stories unspool in peaceful reflections by the water's edge. Fishing the River of Time is an elegant meditation on nature, life, and family, written with warmth and wisdom. It inspires self-reflection and an appreciation of the natural world and the fundamentals of our human experience. It is destined to become a classic work of simple living in the mold of Henry David Thoreau's Walden.

The date is 400 BC. Britain is a patchwork of tribes and kingdoms, united half a century ago by Dumnoualos of Dumnonia, whose armies brought peace to a land torn apart by war. But now the High King is dead, and he leaves two sons, Brenos and Belinos, who are both supported by rival tribal factions. Regardless of their own wishes, one of the brothers is destined to be High King, the other to be banished. And yet his deeds in exile will resound down the centuries, when the savage Celtic tribes burst down from the Alps to sack the nascent city-state of Rome.

The Fisherman is a glimpse into a young boy’s love of fishing and a mother’s love for her son when tragedy strikes and he is diagnosed with leukaemia. Carol’s beautiful and painful words consume the reader, but in setting her story within the context of a fishing expedition, we are able to transcend all fear and uncertainty to have hope in the outcome for her son, Matt. The book discusses Matt’s illness and treatment frankly, but the unique device of creating the story within a fishing trip allows for it to take on an allegorical dimension. Through her carefully crafted words, and with the illustrations and photos, Carol reveals the inner strength and vulnerability which she and her family experience as Matt endures his battle.Matt is now a healthy, happy adult who still has a passion for fishing. Over the last 25 years, there has been a dramatic improvement in the treatment and survival of children with leukaemia – and Julia’s House Hospice (Dorset) is crucial in helping families through the worst times. Profits from the sale of this book will be used to support this charity.
