MEM23951 - Possible post-medieval trackways on Burcombe (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A group of hollowed and terraced tracks around the head of a combe were noted by Cornwall Council during a walkover survey of Burcombe. One track lies north to south and runs across the face of the side of the combe as a terraced way, with another crossing the head of the combe east to west and perhaps serving the extractive pit above it (MEM23950). These tracks vary from 2 metres to 7 metres in width.  During a follow up walkover survey the Mires Historic Environment Officer also noted the presence of several tracks in the area, perhaps connected to the mining activity on Burcombe.
