Full description

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

The earthworks are not depicted on the Uplyme Parish Tithe Map.


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

Boundaries parallel to these earthworks are depicted on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of between the 1880’s-90’s.


Royal Air Force, 1948, RAF/CPE/UK/2482, RAF/CPE/UK/2482 RP 3008-09 10-MAR-1948 (Aerial Photograph). SDV359310.

The earthwork banks are possibly partly visible.


Environment Agency, 1998-2014, LiDAR DTM data (1m resolution), LIDAR SY3195 Environment Agency DTM 01-JAN-1998 to 30-SEP-2014 (Cartographic). SDV359177.

The earthwork banks are visible.


Richard Sims, 2015-2016, Marshwood Vale National Mapping Programme (NMP) project (Interpretation). SDV359291.

Earthwork banks of possible medieval or post-medieval date are visible on Lidar-derived images of between 1998-2014, on Woolly Hill. The two linear and parallel earthworks are northeast to southwest aligned and are sited on, and parallel to, steep southeast facing slope. The earthworks are not depicted on the Uplyme Parish Tithe Map of approximately 1838-48, although boundaries parallel to these earthworks are depicted on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of between the 1880’s-90’s. The nature of the earthworks is, however, largely uncertain. They may represent potential medieval or post-medieval field boundaries or perhaps are associated with the plantations which are depicted here on the First Edition OS map. The earthworks are partly visible on aerial photographs of 1948, although are obscured by tree cover of the plantation after this date and are only visible on Lidar-derived images.
