Skippool

One area of interest historically, is Skippool. Over the years it has been suggested that it could be Portus Setantiorum so it is an area that warrants investigation.

This tithe map is of the area in the 1840's. The area circled show the dam/weir used to control the water for the mill.

Looking at the first OS maps of the area we have.

The area around Skippool has long been an important sanctuary on the Wyre.  Metal detecting on the western side of the river, to the north of Skippool, has uncovered a number of coins which range in date from early Roman to modern times.
