MMO756 - Possible mineral extraction site south of Swansea Farm (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
Area of probable mineral extraction, seen as earthworks on air photographs. The hollows and mounds are spread across two fields to the south of Swansea Farm and may be post medieval in date, however, the earthworks are well rounded perhaps suggesting a medieval or even earlier origin.  A rapid reconnaissance failed to locate the areas of extraction described. The most pronounced feature visible on air photographs appears to be the deeply incised head of a natural combe.
