The well preserved earthwork remains of a deserted medieval settlement near Sweetworthy Combe are visible as a series of rectilinear enclosures, depressions and boundary banks. The settlement may have contained three houses, the largest of which is approximately 32 metres long and 11 wide, and half a dozen smaller and less clearly defined ancillary structures. Fragmentary field boundaries visible on rough grazing to the west may be associated with the settlement. The remains have been transcribed from aerial photographs and surveyed in the field.
