More information : SS 7462 4400. Contour leat seen by McDonnell (1-2) on air photos(3) on the west side of Cheriton Ridge. SS 7480 4301 to SS 7412 4500 (In this sheet). A dry leat altogether some 3.5 km long, probably for early watering of fields (See SS74SW 128 and SS74NW 60) and use at Cheriton Farm. The leat is shown on the Ordnance Survey maps for 1888 (4) and 1904 (5) but does not appear on the latest 1976 (6) 1:2500's. (1-6)

The leat described above continues north into SS 74 NW where it has been recorded as NMR UID 926073. It does not appear to contibnue as far north as Cheriton, however, and therefore may not have been associated with watering here. Its precise function remains uncertain (7).
