Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
The earthwork remains of a probable post-medieval field boundary are visible on aerial photographs to the east of Sherrycombe. Centred at SS 6099 4742, the fragmented boundary runs approximately east to west for 100 metres. It is most likely to represent part of the 19th Century enclosure of Holdstone Down and Girt Down which was later abandoned. The boundary in not marked on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map, and the area has reverted to moorland and scrub by 1972. [1,2]
