Full description

A short stretch of reave is visible emerging from the stream head at SX 563737. This is considered to be part of the Great Western Reave and an extension of the reave to the NW. (SX 57 SE 116).

Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division, 1980, SX57SE112 (Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division Card). SDV235402.

(12/02/1980) There are a number of shallow ditches in the area, resulting from drainage in association with the extensive Foggintor Quarries. No evidence of a reave can be seen on the ground.
