Full description

Horner, B., 11/05/2004, The Marsh (Personal Comment). SDV350192.

'The Marsh' is shown on the 1880s 25 inch Ordnance Survey map with an extensive drainage system with many sluice gates. The system is bordered by Mudbank Lane and Exeter Road on the north and east, by New Street to the south and by the railway to the west which seems to cut across some of the drains. The Budleigh Salterton branch line also cut the system in 1903. Terraced housing had been built over much of the system by the 1930s leaving only the angle between Carter lane and the railways which is now King George's Field.
