Full description

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

The earthworks do not correspond with any linear features in this location.


Environment Agency, 1998-2017, LiDAR DTM data (1m resolution) EA: South Devon Coast to Dartmoor, LIDAR SX8566 Environment Agency DTM 01-JAN-1998 to 31-MAY-2017 (Cartographic). SDV361470.

Earthworks of possible banks are visible.


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 (AI&M) (Interpretation). SDV361305.

Irregularly shaped banks, circa 10m wide, are visible as earthworks on digital images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017. The earthworks, which are situated on a limestone plateau, do not correspond with any linear features shown in this location on the mid-19th century Parish Tithe Map, or on later available historic maps. The poorly defined earthworks are of uncertain origin. Given their proximity and similar topographic setting to prehistoric field system MDV8713, circa 250m to the northeast, it is possible they are of contemporary date. A medieval or post-medieval date is also possible, as is a geological origin.
