Attested: AI iter 1 Vindomora
Where: Ebchester Roman fort beside the river Derwent at NZ10355550.
Name origin: Vindo ‘pleasant’ plus a forerunner of OE mōr ‘marsh’ (Gelling & Cole, 2000: 58-59).
Notes: A flood-risk map gives some idea of the ancient marshey area. Selkirk (1995: 70,72,245) drew attention to a medieval mill dam and bypass channel that may be built upon originally Roman work.
