Monument Number 926248

Hob Uid: 926248
Location :
North Devon
Brendon and Countisbury
Grid Ref : SS7469045200
Summary : The remains of a field system.
More information : SS 746 453. McDonnell (1) depicts banks, seen on air photos (2) forming redundant field boundaries SE of Lawn Wood. (1-2)

The area referred to, centred at SS 747 452, is on fairly steep heather and grassland slopes along the W side of Farley Water. From about SS 7465 4530, just S of the southernmost modern enclosure walls on the W side of the Farley Water, an earthen bank , about 2m wide and 0.3m high, runs southwards to about SS 748 449 where it crosses the Farley Water and curves round northwards across the lower slopes of Middle Hill (see SS 74 NW 39) and Farley Hill, to meet up with more similar banks which eventually join back into the modern field walls on the E side of Farley Water.

The whole forms part of the southern boundary of an area of enclosed land, probably early 19th century enclosures, intended for development and improvement but not subsequently taken up. (3)
