MMO2090 - Medieval strip lynchets east of Rowley Plantation (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A pair of medieval strip lynchets are visible as earthwork on aerial photographs in a field to the east of Rowley Plantation, Parracombe. Centred at approximately SS 6491 4425, the lynchets run approximately north to south, measuring 160 metres long by 6.5 metres wide. They are similar in size and form to those surrounding the deserted settlement of North Thorne, 2.5 kilometres to the north (and outside the National Park boundary). The relationship between these strip lynchets and the settlement pattern in the area is unclear; however, they may be associated with the deserted settlement of Lower Hollacombe. [1,2]
