Kentisbeare: leat to Newland Farm
By Square Oak. The leat has been in existence since 1299 and provided the Newland Farm water supply. It was probably used for irrigation too. In the 19th century it also powered a waterwheel at the farm. The leat runs from Goodiford Mill and is about 1 mile 550 yards long. [Sources: Helen Barrett. Our Heritage.
