Full description

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

The earthworks do not correspond with any linear features on this map.


Ordnance Survey, 1880-1899, First Edition Ordnance 25 inch map (Cartographic). SDV336179.

The earthworks broadly coincide with a row of four trees.


Royal Air Force, 1946, RAF/3G/TUD/UK/223, RAF/3G/TUD/UK/223 Vp1 5009-10 12-JUL-1946 (Aerial Photograph). SDV352279.

Earthworks of a single ditched feature 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 (Interpretation). SDV361305.

Earthworks of a single linear ditch, circa 5m wide and northeast to southwest aligned, are visible on aerial photographs taken in 1946. The earthwork ditch does not correspond with any linear features shown in this location on the mid-19th century Parish Tithe Map, or on later available historic maps, although does broadly coincide with a row of four trees shown on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of the late 19th century, as well as a water course to the southwest. A mill site is also recorded to the northeast (MDV13526). It is therefore interpreted as a possible relict medieval or post-medieval field boundary, or post-medieval or early 19th water channel which had passed out of use by the mid-19th century.
