Nutter’s Platt used to be called Prior’s Platt. There used to be monks in the area. A platt is a small bridge over a moss watercourse. The moss was the wild moorland but people had rights to cut peat from certain areas. Nutter’s Platt was on the edge of this.
The watercourse used to be called the Watter of Winniott and is now Mill Brook and was the dividing line between Hutton and Penwortham. It also divides Nutter’s Platt Farm (which is a listed building) and Spring Gardens, ie they are adjacent.
Still trying to find out more about John Moulding but he was a tenant farmer rather than the owner of the farm.
