Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
A curvilinear bank is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork on the northern end of Trout Hill, Exmoor. Centred at SS 7905 4312, the bank runs approximately north-south and measures approximately 465 metres in length. It is fragmented in places, and varies in width from 2 to 4 metres, and appears to be associated with the extant boundary constructed by the Knight family in the mid-19th century. However, its precise function is uncertain. The bank is not depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map, suggesting it was abandoned prior to publication in 1889. A similar bank is visible at the southern end of Trout Hill, and it is possible that the two banks are the remains of the original boundary, altered at a later date (1-2).
