Full description

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

The visible ditches and ditches and bank did not correspond with any depicted field boundaries.


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

The visible ditches and bank did not correspond with any depicted field boundaries.


Royal Air Force, 1947, RAF/CPE/UK/1974, RAF/CPE/UK/1974 FP 1447-1448 11-APR-1947 (Aerial Photograph). SDV356127.

Two or three curvilinear ditches and a bank were visible as earthworks.


Environment Agency, 1998-2014, LiDAR DTM data (1m resolution), LIDAR ST1200 Environment Agency DTM 01-JAN-1998 to 30-SEP-2014 (Cartographic). SDV359177.

The former boundaries recorded as ditches were visible as very subtle earthworks. The bank was not noted as an earthwork and has probably been levelled.


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

To the north of Treaslake Farm, Buckerell parish, two or three curvilinear ditches up to 8 metres wide and up to 130 metres long wide were visible as earthworks on digital images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2014. A narrower bank was visible in on aerial photographs of 1947.
The visible earthworks did not correspond to any field boundaries depicted on the 19th century mapping available to the survey, although they are broadly in keeping with the layout of the surrounding field pattern is characterised as Barton Fields, enclosures of probable post-medieval date but with some curvilinear boundaries based on earlier enclosure. The ditches and bank are therefore interpreted as the remains of field boundaries of medieval or post-medieval date that became disused by the mid-19th century. The bank was not noted on the lidar derived images and has probably been levelled.
