Monument Number 1461404

Hob Uid: 1461404
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Combe Martin
Grid Ref : SS6211945311
Summary : The remains of a possible medieval or post medieval field boundary are visible on aerial photographs to the west of Coulsworthy Lane. Very little of the earthwork has survived, but it appears to be similar in size and form to extant boundaries in the area, although it follows a different alignment. It is most likely to have been removed in the medieval or post medieval periods to create a larger field.
More information : The remains of a possible medieval or post medieval field boundary are visible on aerial photographs to the west of Coulsworthy Lane. Very little of the earthwork has survived, and it consists of a small bank, centred at SS 6211 4530 running south-west to north-east and measuring 30 metres long. It appears to be similar in size and form to extant boundaries in the area, although it follows a different alignment. It is most likely to have been removed in the medieval or post medieval periods to create a larger field. The boundary is not depicted on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map, suggesting it had gone out of use by the time of publication (1-2).
