Monument Number 1480374

Hob Uid: 1480374
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Carhampton
Grid Ref : SS9856941342
Summary : A ploughed-out post medieval field boundary is visible on aerial photographs as a very slight earthwork north of Longcombe Hill, Carhampton. It appears to have divided the extant field into two smaller fields, and was presumably removed to create a larger area, perhaps for grazing. The boundary may be associated with the deserted settlement of Longcombe Farm, which lies 100 metres south-east of this location. The boundary is not depicted on the first edition Ordnance Survey map, suggesting it had been abandoned prior to publication in 1889.
More information : A ploughed-out post medieval field boundary is visible on aerial photographs as a very slight earthwork north of Longcombe Hill, Carhampton. Centred at approximately SS 9856 4134, the boundary measures some 130 metres long and up to 3 metres wide, although its width may have been exaggerated by ploughing. It appears to have divided the extant field into two smaller fields, and was presumably removed to create a larger area, perhaps for grazing.
This boundary may well be associated with the deserted settlement of Longcombe Farm, which lies 100 metres south-east of this location. The boundary is not depicted on the first edition Ordnance Survey map, suggesting it had been abandoned prior to publication in 1889 (1-2).
