Summary : A deserted medieval settlement on Ley Hill including the remains of seven buildings visible as low stoney banks.
More information : A deserted medieval settlement was located on Ley Hill by R. McDonnell in 1994, during archaeological evaluation work for the National Trust. (1)

The earthworks of this deserted settlement were surveyed at 1:500 scale by the Exeter Office of RCHME in January 1997, as part of its East Exmoor Project.
The remains of 7 buildings were identified, surviving as low stony banks, arranged along an axial hollow way. The site is interpreted as a small hamlet, for which no documented history survives.
A detailed report has been deposited in the NMRC. (2)
