Monument Number 616426

Hob Uid: 616426
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Combe Martin
Grid Ref : SS5922047620
Summary : A curvilinear earthwork to the south-west of East Challocombe Farm has previously been identified as the remains of lynchets or ploughed out hedgelines. From aerial photographs however, it is more likely that this feature is a medieval or post medieval hollow way connected to the hollow way and earthworks recorded as NMR UID 1460158.
More information : SS 5922 4762. The remains of ploughed down fields in the area to the south west of East Challacombe Farm. They are visible as well defined curvilinear lynchets, 1m to 1.5m high and up to 3.4m wide, in a pasture field. There is nothing evident on air photos (a) or the 1899 Ordnance Survey Maps (b). The lynchets would appear to be the remains of ploughed out hedge lines predating the present enclosure.
(Not Surveyed. Sketch for information only). (1)

A curvilinear earthwork to the south-west of East Challocombe Farm centred at SS 5922 4762 has previously been identified as the remains of lynchets or ploughed out hedgelines. When seen on aerial photographs the earthwork consists of a linear ditch feature running approximately north-south before turning 90 degrees east towards East Challocombe farm. A similar feature in the adjacent field to the south appears to connect with this ditch. It is more likely that this feature is a medieval or post medieval hollow way connected to the hollow way and earthworks recorded as NMR UID 1460158. These features are believed to be associated with the deserted settlement at Netherton (see NMR UID 34105) (1-5).
