Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A small roughly circular mound is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork on the slopes of Dunkery Hill, Luccombe parish, at circa SS 8915 4226. The mound is approximately 40 metres to the east of the rectilinear earthwork enclosure at Sweetworthy, thought to be evidence of an attempted enclosure by the settlement of Bagley and Sweetworthy in the medieval or post-medieval periods. At circa 5 metres in diameter, the mound could be the remains of a clearance cairn of similar date. [1,2]
