Mill leat running north-east-south-west to Great Gornhay Farm, cut by road and partially filled in to north-east. Stone lining/wooden stakes visible in other parts of it. Other details: Photo.

Although the leat had obviously been disused for some time, it appeared to be relatively modern in its present form as wooden stakes were observed lining its banks in places. It is shown on the 1841 Tiverton Tithe Map and a field through which it runs, that crossed by the North Devon Link Road, is called Mill Mead.
