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.
