Location :
Somerset

Grid Ref : SS9201042170
Summary : The earthwork remains of field boundaries are visible on aerial photographs of the 1940s onwards, to the north of Hanny Combe, Wootton Courtenay parish. The relict boundaries clearly form part of coherent system with the extant field boundaries that they abut on their eastern side, and most likely represent a phase of abandonment or reduction in farm size, probably during the post-medieval date.
More information : The earthwork remains of field boundaries are visible on aerial photographs of the 1940s onwards, to the north of Hanny Combe, Wootton Courtenay parish, centred on circa SS 92014217. The relict boundaries are clearly associated with extant field boundaries the that they abut on their eastern side, with which they form part of coherent system. The abandonment of some of these fields most likely represents a phase of reduction in farm size, probably during the post-medieval date. Further, and more extensive evidence for this reduction in farm holdings can be seen to the north and south. (1-3)
