Full description

National Monument Record, 2017, Pastscape, Accessed 08/05/2017 (Website). SDV359964.

SX64948039 to SX64998049. A short section of leat 0.8 metres wide and a maximum of 0.2 metres deep runs south-south-west by north-north-east across a steep east-facing slope above Stannon Brook. Little more than a slight shelf in some places this leat apppears to be unfinished. Its lower end is lost in an area of massive earthfast boulders while the other end is discernible beyond a patch of reeds at SX64948039. (This leat is possibly the same as SX 68 SW 74).
