Title The Chains, Exmoor: Results of a walkover survey
Author/Originator

South West Archaeology report 120419
ENPA project name MIRES

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 on the Chains, Exmoor. The results of this walkover survey will help to mitigate the threats that the 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 101 features were recorded during this walkover survey, including mounds, platforms, extraction works, field boundaries, potential stone rows 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.
