Hegarty, C. + Knight, S. + Sims, R., 2016-2018, The Blackdown Hills AONB and East Devon River Catchments National Mapping Programme Project (Interpretation). SDV359463.

An irregular earthwork pit, 12 by 16 metres, is visible on images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2014. No pits are depicted on the 19th century mapping in this exact location, and it is interpreted as the remains of an extractive pit that went out of use before the late-19th century.
