Notes

A small irregular quarry, most likely dating to the post medieval period, is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs on Five Barrows Hill, North Molton. It is depicted but not annotated on the first edition Ordnance Survey map of 1889, suggesting it was abandoned prior to this date. There is no indication as to what material was extracted here; however, it may have been opened in an attempt to extend operations from Five Barrows Quarry to the south (see NMR UID 1484287).
