Site Event/Activity record EEM14682 - 2017: WS - Larkbarrow, Mires Project
A re-assessment of the archaeological features associated with the 19th Century reclamation at Larkbarrow Farm, one of the Knight farms on Exmoor Forest, has shown that there were several phases to this process. A brief examination of some of the Knight’s account books and correspondence, currently held at the Exmoor Society, has allowed the absolute dating of several of these features. The historic landscape of Larkbarrow Farm contains a wealth of information about the process of John and Frederic Knight’s reclamation of the Forest and the establishment of the farmstead. The landscape also contains links to some of the people who worked on the reclamation, giving an insight into the social history of the reclamation of Exmoor Forest.
