Introduction

Land off Burwood Lane/Caddywell Lane, Great Torrington, Devon, Magnetometer Survey (OASIS ID: archaeol20-276842)

A geophysical survey, comprising detailed magnetometry, was carried out within three fields at Great Torrington, Devon, by Archaeological Surveys Ltd. The results indicate the presence of a large rectilinear enclosure in the easternmost field (Site C), with a large number of what appears to be natural features and a number of linear and discrete responses that could have an anthropogenic origin. Within the western and central fields, (Sites A and B) anomalies relate to former land boundaries and also several sets of land drains within Site B that are generally contained within the confines of the former field boundaries. There are several positive linear and discrete responses, but they do not have a characteristic form or pattern preventing confident interpretation.
