Full Description

The Historic Environment Officer for the Exmoor Mires Project undertook a non-intrustive walkover survey of the proposed mire restoration area on Lanacombe, which included this site. Noted was an area of surface stone with no clear surface expression. This may be a spread clearance cairn and part of the MSO7102 field system; but the stone could equally derive from ELN13(212), or be of natural origin. [1]
