Monument Number 1468870

Hob Uid: 1468870
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Challacombe
Grid Ref : SS6759442045
Summary : A post medieval leat or water channel is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork in a field to the north west of Whitefield Barton, Challacombe. It appears to channel water from the junction of two un-named streams across the field towards Whitefield Barton, and as such may represent the feed gutter or "headmain" for the catchwater meadow systems there (see NMR UID 1466855 and 1468865).
