(29/09/1988) A leat is by 1985 aerial photograph project, running from SX 6665 8007 (on SX 68 SE) to SX 6672 7917. Present field action involved inspection of that portion inside the enclosed land of Rummage Farm. Here, it consists of a ditch, following several field boundaries, which sinks at SX 6672 7917. It probably issues as a spring, marked as a well on OS 10:000, 1982, at SX 6682 7913. Another well, under the kitchen of Rummage Farm, is probably still fed by the watercourse.
