Location :

Summary : A possible circular banked enclosure is visible on aerial photographs as a slight earthwork on Trout Hill, Exmoor, opposite the Lanacombe sheepfold. It is apparently terraced into the hillside above an un-named stream, and resembles the prehistoric settlement enclosures seen elswhere on Exmoor. However, it appears to be poorly preserved, and further survey is required.

A break in the bank on the south-eastern side may represent an entranceway.

However, it appears to be poorly preserved, and further survey is required (1).
