A possible water meadow of probable 19th century date is visible as a series of earthwork ditches on aerial photographs of 1946, to the southeast of Mountain Oak Farm. The poorly defined and partial earthworks comprise a northwest to southeast aligned linear ditch, which possibly taps a stream to the northwest, from which are a series of short ditch segments, or gutters, broadly parallel to the southeast facing slope. The possible system was not clearly visible on other aerial photographs made available to the survey and has likely been completely levelled.
