Title:Ancient Fields on the South Devon Limestone Plateau
Originator:Gallant, L. + Luxton, N. + Collman, M.
Summary:A plateau on the highest part of the common with a slight slope to south. Features consist of two roughly parallel low banks and a number of small mounds, both circular and elongated, which may result from differential erosion of other banks. The most prominent bank is 0.4m high. There are possible traces of cross-banks obliquely joining the two long ones. The site is now scheduled as common land and much used by the public.
