Full Description

Two long, narrow enclosures in Yenworthy Combe on the west edge of Stag’s Head Wood may be part of the pre-Glenthorne Estate landscape. Part of the enclosure boundary can be seen by the reservoir where it runs close to the terraced walk and comprises a stony bank, 1.2 metres wide, 0.6 metres high. The enclosures are marked on the tithe map [1] and they may well be the ‘two little meadows’ close to the site Walter Halliday chose for his new house. [2] The area is shown on 2020 MasterMap data.
