Monument Number 1459869

Hob Uid: 1459869
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Selworthy
Grid Ref : SS9040245918
Summary : A possible rectilinear ditched enclosure or field boundary of uncertain date is visible as a cropmark in a field to the immediate north-east of Lower Horridge Wood, Selworthy parish.
More information : A possible rectilinear ditched enclosure or field boundary of uncertain date is defined by two linear cropmarks to the immediate north-east of Lower Horridge Wood, Selworthy parish, at circa SS 903459. The cropmarks are less than 2 metres wide and at least 50 metres and 20 metres long, possibly forming the western and shorter, northern side, of an enclosure or field. A cropmark forming the eastern edge may also be visible, but this may simply be a mark resulting from agricultural activity and has therefore not been transcribed. The cropmarks are visible through an area of cropmark narrow ridge and furrow of possible post-medieval date (see HobUID 1458919) and may therefore predate this period. However, the boundary cropmarks are also on a similar alignment to an adjacent extant field boundary, also probably of post-medieval date, and may be be the remains of a grubbed up hedgerow. The relationship between the phases of activity, and the date of the cropmarks, is therefore unclear. (1)
