Hob Uid: 1102243
Location :
Somerset

Grid Ref : SS9476847676
Summary : A possible Second World War pit is visible as an earthwork. The sub-circular pit measures 5 metres in diameter and is 0.8 metres deep. It is likely to be associated with Second World War military activity (SS 94 NW 64) and may be a bomb crater.
More information : Centred at SS 94768 47669, immediately north of a car park, is a sub-circular pit. It is 5 m in diameter and has very steep sides 0.8 m deep. An arc of spoil is visible on the eastern side and further spoil is visible on the lip of the pit. The feature is presumably associated with WW2 military activity in the area (see SS 94 NW 64), and is best interpreted as a bomb crater.
Found during field reconnaissance and surveyed at 1:2500 scale as part of RCHME fieldwork on the Exmoor National Park holding on North Hill. (1-3)
