Monument Number 1479682

Hob Uid: 1479682
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Timberscombe
Grid Ref : SS9625942774
Summary : A medieval or post medieval field boundary is visible on aerial photographs as a slight earthwork in a field north of Totterdown Farm, Timberscombe. The boundary is visible as a narrow bank forming a right-angled corner of an enclosure apparently within the extant field. It is possible that it represents the remains of a holding pen of some sort, removed to create a larger field. No such enclosure is depicted at this location on the first edition Ordnance Survey map, suggesting it was removed prior to publication in 1889.
More information : A medieval or post medieval field boundary is visible on aerial photographs as a slight earthwork in a field north of Totterdown Farm, Timberscombe. The boundary is visible as a narrow bank centred at SS 9626 4277 and forming a right-angled corner of an enclosure apparently within the extant field. The majority of the bank runs north-south for 85 metres before turning 90 degrees west and running east-west for 36 metres. It is possible that the bank represents the remains of a holding pen of some sort, removed to create a larger field. No such enclosure is depicted at this location on the first edition Ordnance Survey map, suggesting it was removed prior to publication in 1889 (1-2).
