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.

A linear, northwest to southeast aligned cropmark ditch which closely respects the historic field
boundaries depicted on the parish tithe map of approximately 1841, although appears to have
passed out of use by this time. The cropmark is most likely to be of medieval to post-medieval date.

A cropmark ditch of a probable former field boundary of medieval to post-medieval date is visible on oblique aerial photographs of 1984, to the south of Rull Lane. The linear, northwest to southeast aligned cropmark closely respects the historic field boundaries depicted on the parish tithe map of approximately 1838-48, although appears to have passed out of use by this time. The cropmark is most likely to be of medieval to post-medieval date, although given the presence of prehistoric and Roman remains within the vicinity, may be of earlier date. The cropmark ditch was also partly visible on digital images derived from aerial photographs of between 2006-07.
