MDE21564 - Possible post-medieval peat cutting south of Moorhouse Ridge (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
Several rectilinear depressions separated by bulks: possible peat cutting area, but needs detailed survey. Mentioned in 1821 estate survey: rights for pit turves from Soakey Moor.  A study of the archaeology and history of peat exploitation on Exmoor’s moorlands provides additional background on the practice and sites.
