Full Description

A deserted farmstead to the south of Darlick is visible as a series of earthworks. There are several amorphous platforms, the largest of which may represent the domestic building, and measures 14 metres by 8 metres. Others represent the barns and outbuildings. The precise date of the monument is uncertain but they are assumed to be medieval or later. [1] A leat depicted on the 25 inch 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map enters the site from the northeast (see MDE13262). It is not clear whether the two features are contemporary. [3,4] This record was enhanced as part of the National Record of the Historic Environment to Exmoor National Park Historic Environment Record data transfer project. [5]
