Full Description

A small mound was noted during a non-intrustive walkover survey of the proposed mire restoration area on The Chains, undertaken by South West Archaeology as part of the Exmoor Mires Project. This is probably upcast from an adjacent drainage ditch and is thought to be post-medieval in date. [1] The Historic Environment Officer for the Exmoor Mires Project undertook a non-intrustive walkover survey of the proposed mire restoration area on The Chains, which included this site. Noted was a small mound measuring 1.5 metres by 1.5 metres, with a height of 0.3 metres. This is likely upcast from an adjacent drainage ditch. [2]
