Challacombe Medieval Strip Fields, Devon


  • Located in Postbridge, Devon, South West England, England
  • Challacombe Medieval Hamlet is located at the southern end of Challacombe Valley. Challacombe Down rises west of the valley. Along the flank of Challacombe Down are a series of medieval strip fields called lynchets dating from the 12th and 13th centuries. (Source: information board on site). As ever, we've positioned the strip fields on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see their location. The fields are clearly visible on the satellite imagery
  • Perhaps the best place from which to view Challacombe Medieval Strip Fields is across the valley in the area around English Heritage's Grimspound. Winter is a particularly good time to visit when the sun's low in the sky and the detail of the landscape more defined by shadow. There's limited parking available along the road below Grimspound. We'd recommend walking in from the car parking areas near Warren House Inn. You pass through Headland Warren and Vitifer Tin Mine (Disused). If you decide to take this route, see also Challacombe Stone Row on your way
