Full description

Turner, S.C., 2005 - 2006, Devon Historic Landscape Characterisation Mapping (Cartographic). SDV349122.

This area was probably first enclosed with hedge-banks during the later middle ages. The curving form of the hedge-banks suggests that earlier it may have been farmed as open strip-fields.

Ordnance Survey, 2018, MasterMap 2018 (Cartographic). SDV360652.

The curving field boundaries of former medieval strip fields are still extant to the east and north of Foghanger.
