Full Description

Several post medieval drainage ditches are visible on the north eastern side of The Warren, Exmoor. Centred at approximately SS 7841 4139, up to five ditches are visible, mostly running north-west to south-east downslope towards the River Exe. The ditches are very similar to those seen on Great Buscombe to the north east, and are most likely part of the same system. However, since they do not appear to be connected with the larger system, they have been recorded separately. [1,2] This record was enhanced as part of the National Record of the Historic Environment to Exmoor National Park Historic Environment Record data transfer project. [3]
