Monument Number 1468921

Hob Uid: 1468921
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Parracombe
Grid Ref : SS6720544871
Summary : A probable post medieval drainage ditch or leat is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork to the north of Church Lane, Parracombe. The ditch appears to channel water away from the spring in the field marked Churchtown on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map downslope towards Church Lane. It seems unlikely that the ditch was constructed deliberately to bring water to the road, but its precise function is unclear. However, it may be part of the water supply for the former Tucking Mill at Sunnyside.
More information : A probable post medieval drainage ditch or leat is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork to the north of Church Lane, Parracombe. The ditch, which is centred at approximately SS 6719 4487, runs approximately east-west, parrallel to Church Lane for 65 metres, before turning sharply 90 degrees towards Church Lane. It appears to channel water away from the spring in the field marked Churchtown on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map downslope towards Church Lane. It seems unlikely that the ditch was constructed deliberately to bring water to the road, but its precise function is unclear. However, it may be related to the water supply for the former Tucking Mill at Sunnyside (1).
