Full Description

A 4 metre stretch of possible post-medieval track to the east of West Challacombe Farm. The scarp is 1 metres wide by 0.6 metres high and probably represents the rear bank of the slightly terraced access track. It is possible that the feature relates to a pre-19th Century subdivison of the field, however there is no evidence on historic mapping to support this. [1]
