It runs along the bottom of the w scarp of the streamwork before cutting obliquely through it to run sw towards the cox tor carpark. Here it is piped beneath the road before emerging to the s of the car park itself. Its water is supplemented by a channel running s from the spring at sx5319755 [sic]) which joins the leat just to the n of the modern road. It is referred to as the "moortown leat" by robins (nmr citing wilson-north).
