Full Description

Post medieval water meadow system visible on vertical aerial photographs at Armoor Farm, Exton. [4] The system may be associated with the farm waterwheel. [3] It is downstream of Armoor Farm as plotted and therefore could be a system using outflow from the tailrace but not supplying the water power. It could be fed by the strem to the east [6]
