- The name of the Gate Inn at Millington derives from ‘gaits’. These ‘gaits’ were parcels of common land rented to local farmers. Millington Pastures were divided into 108 gaits, one gait being pasture for 6 sheep or 2 beasts under 2 years old. Two features of interest in the village are the ‘squint’ or angled window in St. Margaret’s Church, and the wheelwright’s hooping iron from the old smithy.
