HER Number:MDV128605
Name:Field boundaries at Woodland Barton, North Huish

Summary

Earthworks of curvilinear banks, interpreted as possible relict field boundaries of medieval or post-medieval date, are visible on visualisations derived from lidar data captured in 2019. The field boundaries had likely passed out of use by the mid-19th century.

Full description

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

Earthworks of curvilinear banks are visible.

Earthworks of intersecting curvilinear banks, circa 4m wide and northeast to southwest and northwest to southeast aligned, are visible on visualisations derived from lidar data captured in 2019. The earthworks do not correspond with any curvilinear features shown on the mid-19th century Parish Tithe Map, or on later available historic maps, but are in keeping with the surrounding historic field pattern. The earthworks are therefore interpreted as relict field boundaries of medieval or post-medieval date which had passed out of use by the mid-19th century. One of the banks is clearly truncated by, and so pre-dates, an earthwork gutter of a 19th century catch meadow irrigation system (MDV128564).
