Calbourne Mill stream.jpg - FOR SALE- The name Calbourne is derived from the stream rising on the downs above the village and running through Newbridge and Shalfleet into the Solent at Newtown. The village was originally known as Cawelburn. The name is said to arise from cawel being the old name for kale and burn meaning stream. There were three mills recorded around Calbourne in the Domesday Book of 1086. Particular reference to Upper Calbourne Mill appears in 1299, with a detailed record of ownership from the 16th century. Flour may therefore have been milled on the Upper Calbourne site for over 1000 years. The mill is now a working museum, demonstrating the stone mill in operation during the summer months and still producing stoneground flour.
