Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 1050235

Hob Uid: 1050235
Location :
Devon
North Devon
North Molton
Grid Ref : SS7430035900
Summary : Traces of two intersecting holloways, one running north-north-west/south-south-east probably from Kinsford Gate, the other east/west probably from Span Head. They may be associated with a nearby quarry.
More information : SS 7435 3587. An irregular linear depression, indicating old tramways, seen by McDonnell (1a) on air photography (1b).

The NGR given falls on a fairly steep south-facing slope about 420m above OD, in improved pasture and scattered rough grass. Traces of two intersecting hollow ways-cum-terraces meet at approximately SS 743 359; one running NNW/SSE, probably from Kinsford Gate, and the other running roughly E/W from Span Head. There is an old quarry at SS 7425 3595 which might have been associated with them. Several sheep tracks also cross the slope from east to west. It is probably the hollow ways that were interpreted by McDonnell as tramways. (1)
