Monument Number 1131075

Hob Uid: 1131075
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Selworthy
Grid Ref : SS9232648564
Summary : A possible Second World War linear earth and stone mound measuring 25 metres long by 7 metres wide and 1.2 metres high. It is composed of earth and stone. The eastern end is especially stony suggesting that modern agricultural clearance has resulted in stone dumping on the feature. A number of loose pieces of concrete are also visible. The linear mound is also possibly part of a field boundary that has been subsequently disturbed by Second World War tracks and other military activities (SS 94 NW 64).

The linear mound referred to above (1) is not visible on aerial photographs taken in 1946, but nearby to the NGR given at SS 9235 4855 is a field bank which has been disturbed by Second World War military tracks. The tracks gave access to the target railway (SS 94 NW 126, UID 1131080). The field bank appears to be partially destroyed on aerial photographs taken in 1979. (2-3)
