Full Description

SK 312225. On the west side of Repton Brook is an area of what appears to be ridge and furrow on a very small scale. The ridges are only a yard apart and the whole area only measures some six by twenty yards. It is enclosed by a low bank about half a yard high. It is possible that this area was a water meadow, with the bank so placed as to prevent the water running away to the brook when the meadow was inundated. (1)
