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 The Chains, which included this site. Noted was a sub-rectangular hollow 15 metres long, 8 metres wide and 2 metres deep. This is a small stone quarry probably associated with the construction of the dam and thus dating to the 1820s.  A large scale metric survey of the Pinkworthy (or Pinkery) Pond environs was undertaken by Hazel Riley in 2012 as part of the Exmoor Mires Project. A subrectangular hollow was seen measuring 15 metres northwest-southeast, 8 metres northeast-southwest and 2 metres deep, which lies on the west side of the south face of the dam (MEM22686). This is a small stone quarry, probably associated with the construction of the dam and so dating from the 1820s.
