MMO2853 - Post-medieval field system on Bye Hill (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
Field boundaries of probable post-medieval date are visible on the northern slopes of Bye Hill on aerial photographs of the 1940s onwards, centred on circa SS 8921 3592. The boundaries are not marked on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map and probably therefore predates 1890. The narrow and low earthworks extend for over 130 metres in a roughly northwestern direction, down the steep slopes onto Bye Common. They probably represent a failed or abandoned episode of enclosure, probably of the post-medieval period. [1-4] This record was enhanced as part of the National Record of the Historic Environment to Exmoor National Park Historic Environment Record data transfer project.
