MMO1644 - Post-medieval ditches south and west of Broomstreet Farm (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
Several curvilinear ditches are visible on aerial photographs in fields to the south and west of Broomstreet Farm. There are six curvilinear ditches visible, all running approximately north to south with the longest measuring approximately 150 metres long. Four are located on the east facing slopes and two on the west. They most likely date to the post-medieval period. They are similar in size and form to the gutters of the extensive water meadow system to the north of Broomstreet Farm, and may be either part of the same system, or a failed attempt at creating a new system.
