Norden's Hampshire 1607

In what is now Dorset, east of Christchurch, Norden marks Bascambe Copperas house ie Boscombe Copperas House? and Allomchine Copperas house ie Alum Chine Copperas House?

Mining in the Canford Heath area for ores to make copperas, green vitriol, and potash alum, was an important venture in Elizabethan times.

Notes about copperas

A picture of a post mill, on a hill. There is just the one windmill on Norden's map, outside Clanfield.
