- ENCLOSURE (Post Medieval - 1540 AD to 1900 AD)
The sub-oval enclosure to the southeast of Hurlstone Lane (115298) can be seen from the beach and the fields near Porlock Bay. It is enclosed by a bank, but the gorse is so thick that it is very difficult to even examine the bank, the inside has not been visited because of the vegetation. It is possible that this is one of the potato patches established in the Bossington and West Luccombe areas in the late 18c but it is not known if this is its origin, or whether it is earlier.
Condition: fair, covered in vegetation and difficult to examine
