MONUMENT NO. 1475732

DESCRIPTION + /

A large number of interconnecting ditches or leats, presumably for drainage, are visible as earthworks in fields south east of Great Ashcombe, Exmoor. They appear to have been designed to channel water into Ashcombe Bottom and other un-named streams in the area. They most likely date to the post medieval period, and are possibly part of the Knight family's agricultural improvements in the area. Several of the larger leats are depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map, indicating they were constructed and in use prior to publication in 1889.
