Extraction pits of between post-medieval to 19th century date are visible as earthwork pits on aerial photographs of 1989 and digital images derived from lidar data captured in 2016, to the north of Dunkeswell Abbey. The northern of the two earthworks is semi-circular in shape, measures approximately 24m in length by 14m in width and abuts, and so likely post-dates, an historic field boundary along its southern edge. That to the south is oval in shape and measures approximately 7m in length by 5m in width. The extraction pits are located in an area where a number of similar such features have been recorded during this survey.
