Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A system of Post Medieval field gutters, visible on aerial photographs, probably form part of a water meadow, known locally as a Catch Meadow irrigation system. At least seven roughly parallel ditches, measuring up to 250m long, extend along the contour, between 152m and 183m above OD. They are situated on a south facing slope, centred at SS 9181 2832, between Higher Marsh farm and the site of the deserted farmstead of Lower Marsh (SS 92 NW 29). The system extends as far west as SS 9038 2917 where more fragments of gutters, measuring up to 300m long, are situated.
