- None recorded
As part of the Exmoor Mires Project, Cornwall Council Historic Environment Service were contracted to undertake a non-intrustive walkover survey of the proposed mire restoration area on Lanacombe, which included this site. A low mound was seen, measuring 5 to 6 metres in diameter and up to 0.15 metres high. Four stones are visible, the largest measuring approximately 0.25 metres on its longer visible side. The feature falls within, and is likely to be associated with, a field system of possible Bronze Age date.
