Monument Number 926129

Hob Uid: 926129
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Lynton and Lynmouth
Grid Ref : SS7033045850
Summary : A circular enclosure identified from aerial photographs is probably non-archaeological in origin. The impression of an enclosure was probably caused by the surface topography and vegetation.
More information : SS 74 NW 43 Enclosure ? (AP Site) (SMR 48)

SS 7036 4585. Lush marked ditch, or vegetation mark, suggesting a circular enclousre with entrance on the S side, seen by McDonnell (1) on air photo (2) on Barham Hill. (1-2)

SS 7034 4585. This area located on the gentle western slopes below the summit of Barham Hill is now improved pasture. The area has been deep-ploughed and there is no trace of any "ditch or vegitation mark" or of an enclosure. (3)

Following examination of all available aerial photographs for this area as part of the Exmoor National Park National Mapping Programme survey, it is the opinion of this authority that the feature recorded here is of non-archaeological origin. Specifically, the impression of an enclosure was probably caused by a combination of variations in surface topography and vegetation or fungus rings. (4)
