Abstract/Summary

South West Archaeology Ltd. was engaged by the Historic Environment Officer for the Exmoor Mire Project to undertake a non-intrusive walkover survey of the proposed mire restoration area on Warren Farm, Exmoor (NGR: SS 79513 40812). 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, 57 features were recorded during this walkover survey, of which 47 were wholly unknown. These included mineral extraction works, holloways, hollows and pits, mounds, a stone setting and a series of individual stones. The identified stone setting, the possible pond bay and sheepfold area are deserving of further recording prior to any ditch-blocking activity. In general, however, relatively few new monuments were recorded in comparison with the total area surveyed.
