The Old Mill House is a charming 18th Century grade II listed building on the edge of the village. The property is situated between a 3-acre lake and a tidal stream and it was in this house in 1819 John Keats finished his poem "The Eve of St. Agnes" and here in 1820 he spent his last night in England.....which is where we rowed to
Err...Keats actually finished the poem at Upper Mill House in Bedhampton, though he did come ashore at Langstone to stay at Bedhampton overnight when the ship he was in, bound from London for Rome, had to take shelter from a storm in the Channel.
Haha, you’re more than welcome Mo. Michael and I are thinking of touring the South with our new routine!! 😂
Thanks for a great row Andrew, it’s always nice to go somewhere different...and come home more educated about the local area as well!
See you soon
