A series of post medieval field boundaries are visible on aerial photographs as slight earthworks in a field west of Duredon Farm, Exmoor. Centred at SS 7542 4013, two banks are visible, one running approximately east-west and measuring some 255 metres in length. The second boundary runs east-west at right angles to this and measures 140 metres long, thus dividing the field into three smaller enclosures. The boundaries likely date to the mid-19th century, and the construction of Duredon Farm in 1848 by the Knight family. They are not depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1889, suggesting they were abandoned soon after publication. It is possible they were not intended as permanent field boundaries (1-3).
