Hob Uid: 1089107
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Exton
Grid Ref : SS9470035060
Summary : The deserted farm of Higher Week is possibly referred to in the lay subsidy of 1327 by the names Godman atte Wyk and Roger atte Wyk. The tithe map of 1840 noted the settlement of Higher Week but the area has now been cleared of remains or field boundaries. A slight hollow near a spring with a few old trees may indicate the site. Field boundaries, paddocks and trackways associated with the farm are clearly visible on vertical aerial photographs taken in 1947. More boundaries to the south west (NMR 1121035) may also be associated with the farm.
