Abstract/Summary

South West Archaeology Ltd. was engaged by the Historic Environment Officer of the Exmoor Mires Project to undertake a non-intrusive walkover survey of the proposed mire restoration area at Deer Park, Exmoor (NGR: SS7650.3810). The results of this walkover survey will help to mitigate the threats that proposed drainage ditch blocking may pose to the historic environment. The survey also aimed to identify archaeological features which might require further mitigation work prior to the blocking of drainage ditches. In total 227 features were recorded during this walkover survey, including mounds, platforms, extraction works, relict field boundaries, enclosures, holloways, stone groups and individual stones. A number of these were unknown prior to this survey and several are deserving of further recording prior to any ditch blocking activity.
