Site Event/Activity record EEM14663 - 2009: TS - Hoar Moor and Codsend Moor
English Heritage Research Department
The survey and analysis of the remains on Codsend Moors and Hoar Moor was carried out at the request of Exmoor National Park Authority, occasioned by Natural England’s intention to increase stocking levels on the moors to attempt to retain the last known colony of marsh fritillary butterflies on Exmoor and by the future implementation of groundwork relating to the MIRE Project. The area was visited in late April and early May 2008 so that the archaeological remains could be seen when bracken cover was at its lowest. A walkover survey was carried out, with the aid of the Level 2 survey carried out in 1987-8 by the RCHME . Several new features were noted and these were recorded using the Geo-XT GPS (with differential GPS survey enabled). The Exmoor National Park National Mapping Programme mapped the area using aerial photographs and new features noted as a result of this were examined in the field and recorded using the Geo-XT GPS.
