Full description

The former field boundaries have largely passed out of use by the time of the Cullompton parish tithe map of approximately 1838-48.

Jones-Lutescu, P, 2014, Land to the Northwest of Cullompton, Devon (Report - Assessment). SDV359834.

A historic environment assessment has been undertaken by AC archaeology during September and October 2014 as part of forthcoming planning applications for proposed mixed use development on c. 70 hectares of land to the northwest of Cullompton, Devon.

The broad earthwork ditches measure up to 18m in width and are spread across an area of approximately 11 hectares on the north and east facing slope of a hilltop. The boundaries are broadly north to south and east to west aligned and generally respect the historic field system partly based on medieval enclosures derived from strip fields. The boundaries appear, however, to have largely passed out of use by the time of the Cullompton parish tithe map of 1841.

The boundaries appear, however, to have largely passed out of use by the time of the Cullompton parish tithe map of approximately 1838-48. The earthwork ditches remain visible on digital images derived from Lidar data captured during 2005. A number of additional former field boundaries were also visible as earthwork ditches within the immediate vicinity but are depicted on historic mapping and so were therefore not transcribed as part of this survey.
