HER Number:MDV75203
Name:Old Garden, Oldpark Wood, Clovelly

Summary

A subrectangular ditched enclosure is visible as an earthwork on images derived from Lidar survey in 2007. The enclosure is not visible on aerial photographs as it is obscured from view by established woodland, but is likely to survive as earthworks. A plausible interpretation is a post-medieval or modern garden feature associated with the designed landscape of Clovelly park.
