Location :
Somerset West and Taunton
Grid Ref : SS9840037900
Summary : The remains of at least one building, probably a longhouse.
More information : SS 984379. The remains of at least one building, probably a
longhouse, remaining as an earthwork platform with nettles and
projecting stonework, was discovered near Kingsbridge by E Williams.
To the east are probable building sites and all around are the
earthworks of enclosures. (1)

"Features on the ground suggest the site of an old farm-house,
possibly a long house, dating back perhaps to the 15th century and twoother small buildings, together with a track leading past the site."
(Williams gives the NGR SS 98463739 for this site but it is shown on
his location map of the parish closer to the NGR given by Aston -
