Hob Uid: 1094998
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Brompton Regis
Grid Ref : SS9437030950
Summary : A grass mark in the form of two large subcircular features and a rectangular shape was noted from air photographs. There is no visible field evidence for any feature. It is suggested that the features seen on air photographs are likely to be modern, possibly relating to the venue of an agricultural show.
More information : The Somerset SMR records a cropmark from aerial photographs, north of Redcross Farm, at SS 9437 3095. This is in the form of two large subcircular features and a rectangular shape (1,2).

There is no field evidence for this possible feature; the field is level and is under improved pasture (3).

The features described above, were clearly visible on the Somerset County Council photographs (2) as well as several sorties held by the Exmoor National Park Authority. The rectangular feature is the footings for a modern (temporary) building and the circular parch marks are considered also be modern, possibly relating to the site being used as a venue for a horse/agricultural show.
