Full description

Devon County Council, 1838-1848, Tithe Mosaic, approximately 1838-1848 (Cartographic). SDV349431.

The extraction pit appears to predate a former field boundary first depicted on the East Budleigh parish tithe map of approximately 1838-48. The eastern extent of the extraction pit is also partly depicted.

The former extraction pit is visible as a shallow earthwork pit.

An extraction pit of probable post-medieval to modern date is visible as an earthwork pit on aerial photographs of 1946 onwards and on digital images derived from LiDAR data captured between 1998-2012, to the northeast of Shortwood Common. The former clay or gravel extraction pit is sub-oval in shape and measures approximately 52m in length by 36m in width. It appears to be truncated along its eastern edge, and thus predate, a former field boundary which is first depicted on the parish tithe map of approximately 1838-48. The extraction pit is located within an area dominated by similar such features, many of which are depicted on historical mapping. It remains visible as a shallow earthwork pit on digital images derived from LiDAR data captured between 1998-2012.
