Passfield Mill, Passfield. Records show that this was originally the site of an iron mill, and was converted to a paper mill late in the C.17. The existing brick building with two blind arches incorporating a date-stone 1857-70, was probably erected on the site after a series of fires in the late C.18 and early C.19. The mill pond is now dry. Mill, Mill House and adjoining buildings have been converted to accommodate a modern industry.     SU 819 344

Little Boarhunt, 73 Portsmouth Road, Liphook. This house was rebuilt for himself by H. Inigo Triggs, an architect who worked locally and who also designed the New Rectory at Liphook, and Cooper's Bridge at Bramshott. He died in 1923 and there is a memorial tablet dedicated to him in Bramshott Church. H. Inigo Triggs wrote the standard work on 'Formal Gardens in England and Scotland' (1901-2) and his Elizabethan sunken garden is an interesting feature of Little Boarhunt.
