Full description

Newman, P., 2002, Haytor Down, Ilsington, Devon, 13, Figure 7 (Report - Survey). SDV346395.

Area of Medieval ridge and furrow to the west of the Manaton road. It appears to be contained within a vestigial rhomboid enclosure. Earlier aerial photographs show the ridge and furrow extending north as far as the Prehistoric reave which runs along the ridge between the Manaton road and Smallacobe Rocks and covering an area of over 20 hectares. The rhomboid enclosure consists of a boundary made up of two parallel banks the outer one being little more than an alignmnt of clearance heaps and both are in very poor condition. It is overlain by streamwork and the granite tramway traverses it from east to west.
