Full Description

Small tree ring enclosure seen on aerial photographs. [1,2] Probably associated with Croydon Hall. [3] It is similar to that described under MSO7853, although it now lies within an arable field and is an early 20th Century feature, associated with landscaping of the grounds of Golsoncott House or Croyden Hall. [4] The enclosure is no longer visible by the time the 1995 aerial photograph had been taken. [5] This record was enhanced as part of the National Record of the Historic Environment to Exmoor National Park Historic Environment Record data transfer project. [6]
