A large area of peat cutting, of probable post medieval date, is visible as numerous sunken rectangular pits and irregular earthworks on Hoar Tor, Exe Plain and the western edge of Lanacombe, Exmoor, on both sides of the B3223. It is not clear whether the peat was extracted for domestic fuel, or for turfing enclosure walls.The cuttings were most likely abandoned in the late 19th or 20th century.
