Hamlet (place)
A hamlet is a small human settlement. In different jurisdictions and geographies, hamlets may be the size of a town, village or parish, be considered a smaller settlement or subdivision of a larger, or be treated as a satellite entity to a larger settlement. The word and concept of a hamlet have roots in the Anglo-Norman settlement of England, where the old French hamlet came to apply to small human settlements. In British geography, a hamlet is considered smaller than a village and distinctly without a church.Contents1 Etymology 2 Australia 3 Canada 4 France 5 Germany 6 India 7 Indonesia 8 Pakistan 9 Romania 10 Switzerland 11 Ukraine 12 United Kingdom 13 United States13.1 Mississippi 13.2 New York 13.3 Oregon14 Vietnam 15 See also 16 References 17 External linksEtymology[edit] The word comes from Anglo-Norman hamelet(t)e, corresponding to Old French hamelet, the diminutive of Old French

Civil Parish
In England, a civil parish is a territorial designation which is the lowest tier of local government below districts and counties, or their combined form, the unitary authority. It is an administrative parish, in contrast to an ecclesiastical parish. A civil parish can range in size from a large town with a population of about 80,000 to a single village with fewer than a hundred inhabitants. In a limited number of cases a parish might include a whole city where city status has been granted by the Monarch. Reflecting this diverse nature, a civil parish may be known as a town, village, neighbourhood or community by resolution of its parish council. Approximately 35% of the English population live in a civil parish

Wind Pump
A windpump is a type of windmill which is used for pumping water.De Olifant at Burdaard, FrieslandWindpumps were used to pump water since at least the 9th century in what is now Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan.[1] The use of wind pumps became widespread across the Muslim world and later spread to China and India.[2] Windmills were later used extensively in Europe, particularly in the Netherlands and the East Anglia area of Great Britain, from the late Middle Ages onwards, to drain land for agricultural or building purposes. Simon Stevin's work in the waterstaet involved improvements to the sluices and spillways to control flooding. Windmills were already in use to pump the water out, but in Van de Molens (On mills), he suggested improvements, including the idea that the wheels should move slowly, and a better system for meshing of the gear teeth

Lower Wick, Worcester
Lower Wick is a suburb of Worcester situated to the south-west of the city. Lower Wick is located to the south of St. John's and to the west of the River Severn, adjacent to Powick. It is primarily composed of a 1960s housing estate made up of roads with a Canadian theme to their names, but there is a newer 1990s housing development where the roads are named after bird species. Lower Wick Manor House is on a site that dates back to the 13th century and was formerly a house of the Bishop of Worcester. The Manor Farm now operates as Bennetts Farm, a tourist attraction in Lower Wick next to the River Severn where ice cream is produced.[1] Much of the Battle of Worcester, the final battle of the English Civil War in 1651, took place where the farm is today. The tree in which King Charles II is famously thought to have hidden stood in between Lower Wick and Powick by the River Teme
