Crawford Castle and Bridge in Spetisbury

These are quite old and I have had much trouble digging up information. Someone in the spetisbury govt dug this up for me concerning the fort.

'Aelfric holds (Great) Crawford and Edward from him. Before 1066 it paid tax for 2 hides. Land for 1 and 1/2 ploughs there. 1 villein, 3 servi. The fourth part of a mill which pays 30d. Meadow 12 acres, woodland 6 furlongs in length and 2 furlongs wide. Value was 30d. Value 40s.'

The strangest thing is how much this sounds like the crawford castle in Crawford, Scotland. Iron age fort that was site to many roman conflicts near a river. Which might I add is also one meanings of 'Crawford" as in Bloody Fjord. Might this not be related to Crawford as much as it is a Crawford, if you know what I mean.

This is the bridge.

This is the fort/castle
