MMO2779 - Possible post-medieval clearance cairns southwest of Squallacombe (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
Several small irregular mounds are visible on aerial photographs southwest of Squallacombe, Exmoor. Centred at aproximately SS 7324 3807 at least five mounds are visible, none measuring more than 5 metres across. They lie within a 19th Century enclosure (MSO2713) which is similar to a number of regular square enclosures constructed across Exmoor by the Knight Family, but which appears to have remained unused. To the southeast a large quarry is visible (see MMO2763), and the clearance cairns are likely associated with the either the quarry or the construction of the enclosure. [1,2]
