A possible simple catch meadow gutter of probable post-medieval to mid-20th century date was visible on aerial photographs of the 1940s as an earthwork ditch approximately 180 metres long on the gentle south-facing slopes to the south-east of Penstone Farm. The water source for the possible catch meadow is unknown. The earthwork is not visible on digital images derived from aerial photographs of 2010 and it has probably now been levelled.
