HER Number:MDV122348
Name:Possible enclosure boundary, north of Greper Copse, Woodland

Summary

Earthworks of a curvilinear ditch and bank to the north of Greper Copse, Woodland, are visible on digital images derived from lidar data captured in 2013. They are interpreted as forming the northern extent of a possible enclosure associated with MDV59063, of uncertain date.

Full description

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

The earthworks correspond with a field boundary on this map.

A curvilinear earthwork bank and ditch are visible.

Earthworks are visible on digital images derived from lidar data captured in 2013, to the north of Greper Copse, Woodland. The earthworks comprise a curvilinear bank, circa 15m in width, which is flanked to the north by a similarly curvilinear ditch, circa 20m in width. The earthworks correspond with a field boundary shown on the 1840 Parish Tithe Map, although given their substantial nature are likely to have formed part of a more extensive feature. They do bear similarity to earthworks recorded to the south of Greper Copse (MDV59063) and is therefore possible that these earthworks define the opposing northern extent of that enclosure, giving an approximate length of 450m. There is no evidence for the correspond east and west sides. Further investigation, such as geophysical survey is recommended to help establish more fully the nature of this possible enclosure.
