Mill Lane, Old Marston led directly to the mill site on the Cherwell. Dredging during the 1914-18 and 1939-45 world wars to keep Otmoor drained removed most traces of the mill. Now only the farm buildings at Sescut Farm identify the site, to the east of Oxford. Southcourt Mill and Southcote Mill were alternative names for the mill.
