Hob Uid: 1475995
Location :
Devon

Summary : A medieval or post medieval hollow way or trackway is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork west of Badgworthy Cottage, Brendon. It is depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1889 and was apparently still in use at this point, but its close association with the medieval field boundaries and lynchets of the deserted settlement of Badgworthy suggests that its origins are most probably medieval.
More information : A medieval or post medieval hollow way or trackway is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork west of Badgworthy Cottage, Brendon. Centred at SS 7890 4446, the track begins by running approximately north-south, before turning to the west and continuing east-west for 80 metres. At this point it turns again to the north and continues south-east to north west between two field banks, after which it fades from view.
The track is depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1889 and was apparently still in use at this point, but its close association with the medieval field boundaries and lynchets of the deserted settlement of Badgworthy suggests that its origins are most probably medieval (1-2).
