Monument Number 1497905

Hob Uid: 1497905
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Withypool and Hawkridge
Grid Ref : SS8601032140
Summary : The earthwork remains of two field boundaries and narrow ridge and furrow of probable post-medieval date is visible on aerial photographs to the north-east of Parsonage Farm, Withypool and Hawkridge parish. The boundaries are not depicted on the first edition Ordnance Survey map of 1890 and were therefore probably removed prior to this date.
More information : The earthwork remains of two field boundaries and narrow ridge and furrow of probable post-medieval date are visible on aerial photographs, centred on circa SS 86013214 to the north-east of Parsonage Farm.
The relict boundaries fit into the surrounding, probably post-medieval field system and are probably contemporary with it. However, they are not depicted on the first edition Ordnance Survey map, supporting the interpretation that they were removed prior to its publication in 1890.
They cannot be seen on aerial photographs of 1972 and have probably been levelled by this date. (1-3)
