CONGRESBURY HISTORY GROUP
Domesday and Fair In 1086AD Congresbury had two mills and a population of about 500 people, almost all involved in mixed farming, although grain production took priority. Congresbury Manor, which included Wick St Lawrence, paid £28 15s [£28.75] annually in silver, a huge sum, to the then Lord, the King.
The early 13th century was also possibly when Broad Street was laid out to hold a market and fair. The market lapsed long ago but the September fair continued into the 1960s.
Iwood Mill. The other mill was in the centre of the village
