Monument Number 1485177

Hob Uid: 1485177
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton

Grid Ref : SS8786636519
Summary : A field boundary possibly defining a foot path or trackway of probable post-medieval date are visible as earthwork banks on the south facing combe slopes above the River Exe, to the south of the former farmstead of Middle Staddon. The boundaries are not marked on the first edition Ordnance Survey map and therefore probably predate 1890.
More information : A field boundary of probable post-medieval date is visible as an earthwork bank on the south facing combe slopes above the River Exe, to the south of Middle Staddon, centred on circa SS 87863651.
The boundary bank is visible for approximately 225 metres, descending the slope from between the elevations of roughly 315 and 275 metres above Ordnance Datum respectively. For roughly the first 115 metres, a second, narrower bank can be seen to the south east of the field boundary, offset by up to 5 metres. This may define a foot path or trackway down the slope, possibly associated with the former farmstead of Middle Staddon.
The earthworks are not marked on the first edition Ordnance Survey map of 1890 and therefore had been removed prior this time. (1-2)
