Hegarty, C. + Knight, S., 2011 - 2012, North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty National Mapping Programme Project (Interpretation). SDV349018.

A former field boundary of probable post-medieval date is visible on aerial photographs of the 1940s as a cropmark located to the south of Hartland Point. The field boundary clearly forms part of the wider surrounding field pattern but is not depicted on the Ordnance Survey First Edition 25inch map and therefore had probably passed out of use by the time of its publication (circa 1880s-1890s). The boundary is not visible on later aerial photographs but is likely to survive as a below-ground feature.
