‘A road of communication ... here passes over the Itchen, and soon afterwards the towing path, crossing to the left bank of the river, displays a well watered plain, wider and richer in meadows than at any other part of its course. The farms of Chickenhall and Stoneham extend their corn lands to the very brink of the water ... a picturesque fishing lodge erected by John Fleming, Esq. ornaments the central meadows.’ -John Duthy, 1839
