Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A small circular earthwork is visible on aerial photographs on moorland above Yarbury Combe Head, Challacombe. Centred at approximately SS 7135 4213 and measuring approximately 4.5 metres across, thhe earthwork takes the form of a small ring bank, terraced into the hillside, with a break on the west side which may represent an entranceway. The bank itself is fairly narrow, measuring less than 1 metre wide. It resembles a Bronze Age hut circle, but is much smaller than most on Exmoor, which tend to measure at least 6 metres in diameter. Further study is required. [1,2]
