MMO2377 - Possible Cairn, Hoccombe Hill (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
- None recorded
A small circular mound on Hoccombe Hill, Brendon has been interpreted as a possible Bronze Age cairn. Located at SS 7818 4387 and measuring 3.5 metres in diameter, the cairn lies in a prominent position between two previously recorded cairns, overlooking Hoccombe Water. There are a number of previously recorded cairns in the area. However, the site also lies within the Exmoor firing range and the feature could also be related to military activity in the area. (1-2)
