Historic England Research Records


Hob Uid: 1089145
Location :
Somerset West and Taunton
Grid Ref : SS9234138903
Summary : The site of a deserted farm is alleged at Luckwell, north of Watercombe. Field investigation could reveal no trace of any settlement although some features of relatively modern origin were visible on the aerial photographs of the area.
More information : The Somerset SMR records the site of the deserted farmstead of Luckwell which was in existence in 1842. (1)

The owner of Watercombe had no knowledge of this site and was not aware of any surface remains. (2)

The SMR record describes a walled circular enclosure with straight walls radiating from it, centred at SS 9235 3890. These features were identified on the vertical aerial photographs of the area and were plotted as part of the Brendon Hills Mapping Project although they are thought unlikely to be of any great antiquity and are probably of modern origin.
