MEM22550 - Possible post-medieval prospecting feature on Deer Park (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
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 short linear, 5 metres long and around 2 metres wide. It may be the end of a drainage feature that has been widened by erosion, but a spoil bank on its northern side suggests it may instead be a prospecting feature exploiting the same mineralized zone as the features MEM22544, MEM22545 and MMO2950.
