Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 1089084

Hob Uid: 1089084
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Cutcombe
Grid Ref : SS9310039500
Summary : Modern agricultural marks, previously interpreted as enclosures to the north of Cutcombe. Recent field investigation could not locate any features on the ground.
More information : The Somerset SMR (No: 33536) refers to `cropmark enclosures' at SS 931 395. (1)

Nothing of archaeological interest is visible at the NGR cited, which falls in an improved pasture field. The area is a prominent ridge with bedrock just outcropping in places (eg at SS 9310 3944). It is probable that the lines of outcrop have been mistaken for archaeological features. (2)

The `cropmark enclosures' described by the SMR were identified on vertical aerial photographs, during the Brendon Hills Mapping Project. These features were considered to be of modern, agricultural origin and were therefore not plotted. (3)
