Full Description

Two parallel ditches are visible on vertical aerial photographs, lying either side of a small stream to the south of Gutterhole Barn. These features are likely to be field gutters relating to a post medieval water meadow system. Between these two ditches, to the west side of the stream are six small extractive pits, also likely to be post medieval in origin. [1]
