MONUMENT NO. 1478228

DESCRIPTION + /

An area of peat cutting can be seen on aerial photographs of the 1940s onwards on the higher west facing slopes of Black Mires, Porlock Allotment. It is one of several extensive areas of extraction visible in this area of probable nineteenth century date, although smaller scale peat cutting probably took place from the medieval period into the twentieth century.
