Wall forming south-east boundary of Hentor Farm field system
Dry-stone, possibly medieval, wall which marks southern extent of field system around Hentor Farm (Mon. 102910). It is composed of irregular medium-sized stones and rubble. There are several gaps along length of wall, and it cuts through a small prehistoric enclosure (Mon. 102533). A gap at north-eastern end of wall (corner where it meets Mon. 102915) may mark an original entrance. At south-western end, wall stops at a tin-working gully in Hentor Brook. Dimensions: L 335.0m x B 1.0m x H 0.75m Orientation: SW-NE Archaeological Comments - Site:102519*0 Official survey (C Thackray, 1994, Map III) records wall stopping circa seventy metres north-east of Hentor Brook adjacent (south-east of) kink in Phillips Leat (Mon. 102520). Butler (1994, fig 49.8) records wall turning north-eastwards to meet this kink in Phillips Leat; it was probably cut by leat but wall is not recorded north of it.
