Summary : A post medieval field system is visible as low earthworks on Spangate land and the south-eastern slopes of Dunkery Hill. The field system may be associated with the deserted settlement of Spangate.
More information : The remains of a post medieval field system lie on the SE edge of Dunkery Hill, centred at SS 915 415. The field system covers an area of some 1km2, and may have been associated with the occupation of Spangate, a farmstead across the valley which was deserted very recently (SS 94 SW 24). The field system was surveyed using differential GPS as part of the RCHME Exmoor Project (1).

A post medieval field system is visible on aerial photographs as low earthworks centred on circa SS 915413, extending for just over 50 hectares (0.5 square kilometres) over Spangate land and the south-eastern slopes of Dunkery Hill. A small area of narrow ridge and furrow, probably evidence for post-medieval cultivation, can be seen on Spangate Land. The field system was transcribed as part of the Exmoor National Mapping Programme survey. (2-7)
