Hob Uid: 444993
Location :
Devon
Teignbridge
Ilsington
Grid Ref : SX7659078140
Summary : A circular ditch sited on the gently sloping northern summit of the Haytor Down spur. It has a level interior and light external bank. The, well-defined ditch has a V profile and a diameter of 24m. It is 1.9m wide and survives to a depth of 0.6m. The external bank, where visible is approximately 1.5m wide. The southern quadrant has been overlain by a modern footpath. The unsilted appearance of the ditch suggests this is not a prehistoric feature.
More information : At SX 7659 7814, upon the summit of a spur with a wide
view of the surrounding country, there is a shallow ring-ditch.
It is best preserved in the north and west quadrants where the
ditch is 2.5 m. wide and 0.7 m. deep. In the south and east it
is traceable but unsurveyable. Its origin and purpose are
obscure.

A 25" survey has been made. (1)
