Name:Field Boundaries south of Daccombe Brake, Coffinswell

Summary

Two curvilinear earthwork ditches, visible on images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017, and partly on aerial photographs taken from 1946 onwards, are interpreted as the remains of medieval field boundaries that went out of use before the mid-19th century.

Two curvilinear earthwork ditches, up to circa 10 metres wide, are visible on images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017 and partly on aerial photographs taken from 1946 onwards. They are interpreted as the remains of former field boundaries and their curvilinear shape indicates a likely medieval origin. They are not depicted on the available 19th century mapping and so are likely to have gone out of use by the mid-19th century.
