MMO3378 - Medieval or post-medieval routeways on Venford Moor (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
The remains of four possible hollow ways or tracks of medieval or post-medieval origin can be seen on aerial photographs as low earthworks, on the northeast facing slopes of Venford Moor. Centred on circa SS 8603 2918, approximately 300 metres to the west of Venford Farm, the hollow ways cross 400 metres of slope and climb 50 metres in elevation to approach to the summit of West Anstey Common. The earthworks appear to have been cut by a quarry of probable post-medieval date and are largely within land enclosed in the 20th Century, and have probably been levelled by modern agricultural improvements.
