Why "after 1523" for water-meadows in England? Is there firm evidence that they did not exist before that date?Itsmejudith 08:38, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

History[edit]

Needs a section on history, including when different types were developed and where used – I don't know enough to write it.--Richard New Forest 21:34, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

I removed the 1523 date as the 1911 Britannica article referenced said that some dated back to Roman times. Would be interested to hear from anyone who knows more about the dating. Itsmejudith (talk) 11:53, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

The bit at the top saying it doesn't cite any sources is obviously well out of date. What it really needs imo is a discussion of why the meadows are no longer in use, a question which is not addressed. 95.144.175.171 (talk) 17:20, 2 January 2011 (UTC)steve
