Full Description

A small stony mound, SS 7878 4885, was recorded 36 metres south of the main trackway at the western end of Cosgate Hill, at about 330 metres above Ordnance Datum. The grass covered subcircular mound is 6.4 metres in diameter and rises steeply to a height of 1.5 metres. The sharp nature of the mound and the vegitation cover would suggest that the feature is modern in date. [1] The feature was recorded at 1:2500 scale using GPS equipment as part of an archaeological survey of the Cosgate Hill area. The survey was undertaken by the Exeter office of English Heritage at the request of the Exmoor National Park Authority. A report was compiled as part of the survey work and is available from the NMRC, Swindon. [2] This record was enhanced as part of the National Record of the Historic Environment to Exmoor National Park Historic Environment Record data transfer project. [3]
