MSO7517 - Post-medieval water meadow southwest of Pooltown (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
The remains of a fragmented water meadow system presumed to be associated with the deserted medieval farmstead known as Washers. The water meadow survives as a number of fragmented linear ditches running parallel to the hill side. They were seen as earthworks and mapped from aerial photographs.  Washers is presumably MSO7499, which is, however, a long way to the south.  This record was enhanced as part of the National Record of the Historic Environment to Exmoor National Park Historic Environment Record data transfer project.
