Summary

A post medieval field boundary is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork in a field north west of Goat Hill Bridge, Exmoor. The boundary divides an extant field into two smaller fields; part of it is depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1890, suggesting it was removed prior to publication. Most of the field boundaries in this area were laid out by the Knight family after they acquired the former Royal Forest, and it is likely that this boundary was laid out at the same time, but removed as surplus to requirements.

Full Description

A post medieval field boundary is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork in a field north west of Goat Hill Bridge, Exmoor. Centred at approximately SS 7222 4066, the bank runs approximately north-east to south-west, parallel to the extant boundary visible at SS 7215 4074. The bank divides an extant field into two smaller fields; part of it is depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1890, suggesting it was removed prior to publication. Most of the field boundaries in this area were laid out by the Knight family after they acquired the former Royal Forest, and it is likely that this boundary was laid out at the same time, but removed as surplus to requirements (1-2).
