MMO2383 - Possible Bronze Age cairn on Trout Hill (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A small oval mound is visible as an earthwork on the summit of Trout Hill, Exmoor, and has been interpreted as a possible Bronze Age cairn. Centred at approximately SS 7870 4233 and measuring approximately 9 metres across, the cairn is situated in a prominent position overlooking Hoccombe Water to the northwest and an unnamed stream to the southeast. However, it also lies close to an area of 19th Century agricultural improvement and may be related to or disturbed by this activity.
