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

A level rectangular earthwork, circa 14 by 30 metres, is visible on aerial photographs from 1946 and on images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2012. It corresponds to one of two rectangular areas depicted with hachures on the late-19th century maps as stepped terraces, and is thought most likely to be a garden feature associated with Peamore House. If so, it was probably laid out in the second part of the 19th century, since it is not depicted on the Tithe Map.
