Monument Number 1486641

Hob Uid: 1486641
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Exmoor
Grid Ref : SS7653636661
Summary : A post medieval contour leat, possibly related to the water meadow system at Emmett's Grange, is visible as an earthwork north of Kinsford Water, Exmoor. It is similar in size and form to the leats and gutters of the Emmett's Grange system (see NMR UID 1099668), but there is no obvious physical connection between the two. It certainly dates to the post medieval period, and is probably part of the mid-19th century agricultural improvements by the Knight family.
More information : A post medieval contour leat, possibly related to the water meadow system at Emmett's Grange, is visible as an earthwork north of Kinsford Water, Exmoor. Centred at approximately SS 7651 3661, the leat follows the contours of the west facing slope above an un-named tributary of Kinsford Water and measures approximately 230 metres in length. It is similar in size and form to the leats and gutters of the Emmett's Grange system (see NMR UID 1099668), but there is no obvious physical connection between the two. It certainly dates to the post medieval period, and is probably part of the mid-19th century agricultural improvements by the Knight family (1).
