Full Description

An area of stony clitter 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 seen to contain numerous individual stones and was orientated eastnortheast by westsouthwest, the stones disappear as the peat depth increases. It forms a western extension of MEM22519. [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 area with frequent surface stone which is similar to, and possibly the same as the nearby stony area MEM22519. [2]
