Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
A field system noted on aerial photographs taken in 1947 and 1971. [1,2,6] The extensive earthwork remains of a post medieval field system on Withiel Hill which consists of banked rectilinear enclosures with traces of cultivation marks within many of the fields. The narrow ridge and furrow cultivation is described separately in record MSO8957. The field system is cut through by a trackway known as the Herepath Saxon Trackway (SS93NE 33) which is defined in part by the field system with traces of extensive use and re-use. The trackway is aligned roughly east-west and marks the line of the parish boundary between the parishes of Treborough/Luxborough and Bompton Regis. The field system and trackway were seen as earthworks and mapped from aerial photographs.
