aerial photograph of parch marks near Coombe Martin Devon UK. I spotted these interesting parch marks while flying a couple of miles East of Coombe Martin. Nothing is marked on the OS and I have not found anything with online searches and so it may be completely unknown. Its hard to say what it is, it could be natural, but to me it does look like the outline of an enclosure. The location is not ideal for defense and so it its likely to be a fort but could be a defended farmstead or perhaps just agricultural terracing. Just off the top left of the image is a former Mill Pond from the Post-medieval water mill at Tattiscombe Farm so there is a posibility these parch marks could be connected with that.

The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
