Plainly records of salt springs known in the 'Dark Age' are limited. The earliest comprehensive list is the Domesday Book (1086 CE) which lists inland salt production at Droitwich, the Wich in the Hundred of Warmundestrou (Nantwich), Northwich, Middlewich and the now lost manor of Burwardestone(?Fulwich) (probably Whitewell / Iscoyd in Flintshire)*. The Saxon name "wich" may denote a salt-works (certainly by 1607 this was believed by Camden, who suggests the people of this area, then known as the "Wiccii", got their name from "wiccj", meaning a salt pit* [though it seems to be transcribed as wiches in the version (with additions) by Philemon Holland*]). There is evidence of the four "wichs" around Chester*, and Droitwich*, being used from the Iron Age onwards. Other likely candidates would be the saline springs at Llandrindod Wells, apparently known to the Romans as Balnea/s Siluri/a (Baths of the Silurians [~Welsh])*, though flow here is low* and the wells at Purton Stoke or Wootton Bassett, both of which are saline*, and nearer Bath, but for which there is no ancient historical record other than them being "traditional".
