Hob Uid: 1002153
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Brendon and Countisbury
Grid Ref : SS7648045200
Summary : A circular feature was noted on air photos. Field investigation revealed a poorly-defined platform 4m in diameter and thought to be associated with World War II military activity.
More information : "A doubtful circular banked enclosure" (a) is recorded at SS 76484520. In the vicinity of the NGR cited are a number of small mounds and other surface disturbance associated with WW2 military activity (see SS 74 NE 46).

An irregular, poorly defined platform 4m in diameter lies at SS 76474523. It is clipped by a track on its western side and is almost certainly associated with WW2 activity in the area. It is possibly the feature recorded by McDonnell (a). (1)
