Site Event/Activity record EEM14895 - 2019: WB - Gates at Barlynch Priory
Exmoor National Park Authority
Access works were undertaken by ENPA staff in 2019 to facilitate pedestrian visitors around Barlynch Priory. The work comprised the installation of 3 new gates, repair of one gate and checking of a further gate as part of a Monuments Management Scheme run by ENPA in partnership and with grant funding provided by Historic England. Only one gate (4) requiring below ground work lay within the Scheduled area. Gate 5 was cleared of undergrowth and found to be serviceable. A potential layer of collapsed masonry or demolition debris was observed at Gate 4. There were a number of fragments of pottery and glass present but nothing predating the 19th century.
