Full description


Vis=11/4/1995 (gerrard) see subsheet 41 (mpp).

HAYNES NO.10, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV150446.

Trowlesworthy warren. Two vermin traps described by haynes as occupying respectively the north and south walls of the "north pound". That interrupting the north wall (haynes no.11) is well-defined. The southern one has its inner funnel resting on a hut circle (haynes no.10) (haynes).

SEE SUBSHEET 41 + 42, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV150447.

(haynes' grid refs very unreliable, (sx57506445 for the n one, and sx76066440 for the s one). The pound sx56se/85 is assumed to be the one he refers to as the north one, although cook recognises vermin traps in the southern pound (see subsheet 41 + 42) (dmg).
