Bintry or Bintree[edit]

Hello DiverScout

I have reverted you edit to the Bintree Article. The Watermill is known as Bintry and not the Bintree after the village. I live close by and know this to be true and if you check the Norfolk Mills[1] site you will also see it is referred to as Bintry. The postal address is also Bintry.

Hi, I live near there too (and am bred and born Norfolk) and provided a reference for Bintree Mill which is what I am most people I know have always known it as. There seem more references for Bintree Mill than Bintry Mill - but I'm not going to lose any sleep over it! DiverScout (talk) 16:40, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

  • As a point of reference have a look at the photos of the owners lorry's that are on the Norfolk Mills web site[2].Stavros1 (talk) 19:32, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
  • After more research into the correct name for this mill I have noticed that the OS Explorer Map 238 Dereham & Aylsham, Castle Acre & Reepham refers to the watermill as Bintree. Faden’s Map of Norfolk 1797 refers to the watermill as Bintry, so I guess both names are correct really.

I know that the whole village was known as Bintry for a long while, and still does sometimes, then Bintree became the more accepted spelling. I'm assuming that the mill has been following this accord (or lack of). Is often a pig trying to settle these issues so unless either of us comes on something definitive I agree it's probably best to leave it with your version!
As an aside, do you happen to know anything about the chapel in Broom Green? I'm hoping to sort something out for the hamlet in the next week or so and any extra information would be helpful. DiverScout (talk) 23:16, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
