Full description

Field called 'Shute Meadow' on (plot No. 683) may indicate a catchwork system. Other details: 2427.

No evidence of a catch meadow or field gutter system type water meadow can be seen on aerial photographs available to the survey. As catch meadow gutters are often persistent features in the landscape, this might indicate that any water meadows in this area had passed out of use a significant period of time prior to the 1940s.
