Guided Walk: Ley Hill Medieval Settlement

A walk with a knowledgeable leader to the deserted medieval settlement on Ley Hill, excavated during archaeological evaluation work for the National Trust. There are the remains of a hamlet of seven buildings, surviving as low stony banks, though no documented history survives. The buildings are grouped along a former route from Exford to Porlock, and are associated with a field system nearby. There are some steep climbs.

This walk links to the talk in Simonsbath Festival on ‘Landscape Archaeology on Exmoor’ on Wednesday 9th, 7.30pm.

3mls/2.5mls. No dogs.
