Summary : Pre-enclosure trackways, extending for two kilometres over Brendon Hill, visible as cropmarks and earthworks. The trackways are not continuous but extend from near Brendon Hill and are aligned NW-SE. The date of these trackways is not clear, it is debatable whether they are all contemporary, but they all seem to pre-date the enclosure fields and some are cut by trackways associated with ironstone mining.
More information : ST 0015 3490, ST 0130 3455. Trackways, Wiveliscombe Barrow. For details see county SMR. (1)
