Summary

A large number of curvilinear earthwork banks and ditches, visible on aerial photographs taken from 1946 onwards and on images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017, are interpreted as relict parts of the medieval field system, which went out of use by the end of the 19th century.

Hegarty, C., Knight, S. and Sims, R., 2018-2019, The South Devon Coast to Dartmoor Aerial Investigation and Mapping Survey. Area 1, Haldon Ridge to Dart Valley (Interpretation). SDV361305.

A large number of curvilinear earthwork banks and ditches, between 2 and 10 metres wide, are visible on aerial photographs taken from 1946 onwards and on images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017. Although many are depicted as boundaries on the 19th century mapping, many are not, although they fit into the extant field pattern and are interpreted as relict parts of the medieval field system. Those that are not depicted on the available mapping probably went out of use by the end of the 19th century, and only these have been transcribed.
