Full Description

A broad flattened bank or linear mound of unknown date was noted during a non-intrustive walkover survey of the proposed mire restoration area on Deer Park, undertaken by South West Archaeology as part of the Exmoor Mires Project. This was orientated northeast-southwest and at a slightly different angle to the adjacent hollow way. This is possibly a natural feature. [1] The Historic Environment Officer for the Exmoor Mires Project undertook a non-intrustive walkover survey of the proposed mire restoration area on Deer Park, which included this site. Noted was a poorly defined linear mound. Given its parallel orientation, it is most likely to be associated with the adjacent mine working, or be a natural topographic feature. [2]
