HER Number:MDV124355
Name:Field Boundary south-west of Farlacombe, Bickington

Summary

A curvilinear bank, visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs taken in the 1940s and as an earthwork on images derived from lidar data captured in 2013, is interpreted as the remains of a medieval field boundary that went out of use before the mid-19th century.

A curvilinear bank, up to approximately 10 metres wide, is visible as a pale cropmark on aerial photographs taken in 1946 and a slight earthwork on images derived from lidar data captured in 2013. It fits into the field pattern depicted on the 19th century maps, which has been characterised as medieval in origin, and is on the same alignment and appears to join to extant field boundaries at both its south-west and north-east ends. It is not depicted on the Tithe Map so this segment of field boundary therefore probably fell out of use before the mid-19th century.
