Watts, S., 2011, Watermeadow and Leat System at Newton St Cyres (Personal Comment). SDV346605.

Site visit 9th February 2011. The course of a leat that served a small waterwheel adjacent to Court Barton Lane is still visible across fields to the west of Court Barton Lane. The leat was originally carried in an aqueduct across the Shuttern Brook and was conduited underground from the east bank of the brook to the waterwheel. The underground section has collapsed in places revealing brick lining. Part of the aqueduct survives on the west bank of the Shuttern Brook. Other details: Digital photos.
