Full Description

A short length of bank 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 appears to curve off a nearby 18th Century causeway to join a nearby possible platform. [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 an unconvincing, poorly defined bank. [2]
