MONUMENT NO. 1477898

DESCRIPTION + /

An extensive area of peat cutting of probable nineteenth century date can be seen on aerial photographs of the 1940s onwards on the upper slopes of Elsworthy, Exmoor parish. The peat cuttings, known locally as turfs, are physically associated with the ditches of a nineteenth century drainage system and were probably opportunistically exploiting the excavations of the failing drainage system during the second half of the nineteenth century.
