Full description

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

The earthworks correspond with field boundaries depicted on the Tithe Map.


Ordnance Survey, 1880-1899, First Edition Ordnance 25 inch map (Cartographic). SDV336179.

The field boundaries are not depicted but lines of schematic trees mark their former course.


Royal Air Force, 1946, RAF/CPE/UK/1823, RAF/CPE/UK/1823 RP 4247-4248 04-NOV-1946 (Aerial Photograph). SDV354994.

Curvilinear earthwork banks are visible. Map object based partly on this source.

Curvilinear earthwork banks are visible. Map object based partly on this source.


Turner, S.C., 2005 - 2006, Devon Historic Landscape Characterisation Mapping (Cartographic). SDV349122.

The field pattern has been characterised as Barton Fields.


Hegarty, C. + Knight, S. + Sims, R., 2014-2015, East and Mid Devon River Catchments National Mapping Programme Project (Interpretation). SDV356883.

Former field boundaries to the north-east of Moorland Farm were visible as earthworks on aerial photographs of the 1940s and survived to be seen as subtle earthworks on images derived from lidar data of 2005. The earthworks correspond in part to field boundaries depicted on the Tithe Map for Bradninch. Those that do not were probably removed prior to the 1840s. The Tithe corresponding boundaries are not depicted on the Ordnance Survey first edition map of the 1880s and were therefore probably removed between the 1840s and 1880s. The earthworks are located within a field patter characterised as Barton Fields, and are therefore potentially of medieval and post-medieval origin.
