Full description

University of Southampton, 2018, North Devon Rapid Coastal Zone Assessment Survey Desk-Based Assessment, FID 4317-20 (Interpretation). SDV361978.

Four mound-like features upstanding by about 1-2 metres from an otherwise low relief field visible on Lidar imagery. Circa 55 by 30 metres across (FID 4317), 28 by 25 metres across (FID 4318), 21 by 23 metres across (FID 4319) and 25 by 20 metres across (FID 4320) respectively. They are possibly related to the extractive pit which is surrounded by the mounds.
