MEM22602 - Prehistoric mound on The Chains (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A low and indistinct 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 feature is partly mutilated, being identified by differential vegetation. The feature is thought to be prehistoric in date.  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 an indistinct mound measuring 3 metres in diameter and standing 0.3 metres high. This has a non-stony make-up, but as it is located in a prominent position it is possible that the feature is a mutilated prehistoric feature.
