Monks Dyke

Hob Uid: 354568
Location :
Lincolnshire
East Lindsey
Louth, Keddington
Grid Ref : TF3294087260
Summary : Water channel, associated with the Medieval abbey at Louth, seen as earthworks.
More information : [TF 3294 8726] approx. to TF 3516 8875 approx.] Monk's Dike [G.T.] (1)

Aswell, or Ashwell, south of the town, together with St. Helen's
well nearby (2 holy wells), once supplied water to Louth Park
Abbey, by means of a cut called Monk's Dyke.
The course is represented on the 1st edition O.S. 1" map as
terminating at Abbey House. The published entry at TF 3601 8854
appears to be incorrect. (2-3)

This ditch is maintained and extended as modern drainage; it is
culverted in parts and exhibits no traces of antiquity. (4)

The Medieval water channel, referred to by the previous authorities,
was visible for 900m from TF 3423 8753 to the edge of the 1: 10, 000
scale quarter sheet at TF 3500 8792. It then continues up to Louth
Abbey up to TF 3516 8875 (see TF 38 NE 2). (Morph No. LI.205.3.12)

This description is based on data from the RCHME MORPH2 database. (5)
