Abstract/Summary

A walkover survey of land on Horsen Hill, Horsen Farm, Exmoor, was carried out in January and February 2016 in advance of mire restoration to be carried out by the Exmoor Mires Project. The work was carried out in order to characterise, quantify and locate known and unknown heritage assets within the defined survey area. Several previously unrecorded heritage assets were located, including a Bronze Age cairn and a large area of early medieval hollow ways.
