'Great Meadow' at Trowlesworthy Warren extends from SX56566472 to SX56746472 and is 180 metres by 135 metres. Dates to 17th or 18th century. Solidly built enclosing wall consists of a stone revetment externally and a grass-covered bank within. This suggests that it was designed to keep animals out rather than in. Originally a partition wall enclosed a western strip of this field, 30 metres wide and known as 'Little Meadow'. This wall was removed after 1844, but a short stretch may still be seen on north-west of the field.
