More information : A rectangular enclosure is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs, east of Longcombe Lane, on the border of Withycombe and Carhampton. Centred at SS 9872 4126, the enclosure is defined by a bank measuring 1-2 metres wide, with the enclosure itself measuring 22 metres long by 12 metres wide. It is not depicted on the first edition Ordnance Survey map of 1889, suggesting it was abandoned prior to this date and is most likely a redundant post medieval field associated with the deserted settlement of Longcombe Farm, which lies 100 metres south west of this location (see NMR UID 1155086) (1-2).
