Re-examination of the cartographic evidence by Exeter Archaeology in 2003 allowed a reinterpretation of the cropmark evidence for the double linear feature suggesting it may be the former field boundary shown on the 1847 Tithe Map. Other details: Fig 4.

A linear feature is visible as a double ditch on aerial photos (p1). It is sited within an area described as ‘Barton’ fields for Devon’s Historic Landscape Characterisation and is likely to be a field boundary of C15th- C18th origin. It has been digitally plotted as part of the National Mapping Programme.
