Abstract/Summary

A previously unrecorded stone row was discovered in 2006 on the low spur between the West Lyn River and Warcombe Water, bringing the total number of these monuments in the Exmoor National Park to nine. A previously unrecorded stone setting was also discovered recently on the north-western edge of Trout Hill. These two monuments were surveyed at scales of 1:200 and 1:100 respectively, and a photographic record of the stones was taken. During the course of the survey an area of presumed Bronze Age field clearance and a pair of small upright stones were discovered close to the stone row. A small area of field system on Ilkerton Ridge which had been interpreted as prehistoric in date was also investigated; it probably dates from the historic period.
