MEM22488 - Possible holloway of unknown date on Spooners (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
The Historic Environment Officer for the Exmoor Mires Project undertook a survey of the proposed mire restoration area on Spooners, which included this site. A possible holloway was identified from LiDAR data, measuring 110 metres long. It runs roughly parallel to the route followed by a post-medieval trackway or packhorse road (MMO2904) and may be part of the same feature. Alternatively this may be associated with a nearby platform (MEM22462).
