This is an article which was written for the Worfield Parish Magazine in December 2018. The life blood of the Parish of Worfield is the River Worfe & other tributaries and streams and they provided water to power mills, fish, water for livestock and water for (illegally) soaking hemp and flax. When flooding occurred the surrounding meadows were enriched by the water's nutrients and gradually weirs were created to force the streams to flood. These water meadows were a feature of the landscape up to the nineteenth century.
