Monument Number 1461906

Hob Uid: 1461906
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Brendon and Countisbury
Grid Ref : SS7631149292
Summary : An earthwork bank, potentially of medieval date, can be seen on aerial photographs possibly defining a boundary to the south of Countisbury Common.
More information : An earthwork bank, or series of separate banks centred on circa SS 76394907, visible on aerial photographs on Countisbury Common may define a boundary contemporary with areas of failed enclosure, probably of medieval date, to the south-west (NMR UID 1033005) and south-east (NMR UID 1002087). For the period that these field systems were active it may have defined the southern extent of Countisbury Common and possibly partly defined the course of the road now known as the A39. Large sections of this earthwork have been levelled by ploughing by 1972. (1-2)
