Full description

South West Heritage Trust, 1838-1848, Digitised Tithe Maps and Transcribed Apportionments (Cartographic). SDV359954.

Plot 567a is names as Innerborough ,under arable cuivation.


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

The visible earthwork does not correspond with any depicted pit but does closley match a curvilinear enclosure or sub-plot on the south east side of plot 567a.


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

The visible earthwork does not correspond with any depicted pit. A small pond is shown in this area.

Irregularly shaped pits were visible as shallow earthworks.


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

A irregularly shaped pit up to 71 metres long and 21 metres across was visible as shallow earthworks on digital images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2014.
The visible earthworks did not correspond with any pit features explicitly depicted in this location on the 19th century mapping available to the survey. However, it does closely match a curvilinear enclosure or sub-plot depicted on the Tithe Map for Payhembury. A smaller pond is depicted in this area on the OS First Edition 25inch map. This supports the interpretation that the visible earthworks are the remains of an extractive that pit had passed out of use prior to the mid-to-late 19th century and was subsequently partly utilised as a pond.
