MEM22528 - Post-medieval mining waste on Deer Park (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A stone group 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 is an arrangement of four stones that are considered to be of prehistoric date. The largest stone measured 0.6 metres by 0.6 metres, with a height of 0.5 metres; the other stones were smaller. This site lies directly below mine workings so the stones are perhaps ex situ. 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. As suggested, these stones are probably mining waste from the workings upslope.
