Monument Number 915126

Hob Uid: 915126
Location :
North Devon
Grid Ref : SS6761047480
Summary : A series of linear gullies on Martinhoe Common has been interpreted as the remains of hollow ways.
More information : SS 6755 4615 to SS 6750 4790. The remains of series of hollow ways across Martinhoe Common.

Two groups of irregular linear gullies and banks reported by McDonnell (1) on the east side of Martinhoe Common.

These features are the remains of a hollow way route from the Woody Bay area south across the common to Parracombe. The route is shown on the 1842 tithe map (2) predating the existing enclosure banks when Martinhoe Common was open commonland. The area is now uner pasture. The best preserved length of the hollow ways (shown on 1:2500 survey for SS 64 NE 34) still remains from SS 6774 4691 south to SS 6771 4651 and fragmentary remains, visible as shallow linear hollows are evident north and south of the road at SS 6761 4748, and near Greenwell Corner at SS 6765 4782. The remainder have been ploughed out, the route being superceded by the metalled roads. (3)
