HEMYOCK CASTLE, HEMYOCK, DEVON. REPORT ON GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY 1999

Author(s): Louise Martin

A resistivity survey was conducted over an area of approximately 0.1ha that was believed to contain the remains of the western curtain wall and other associated features at Hemyock Castle, Hemyock, Devon. These features had failed to be conclusively identified in an earlier architectural survey incorporating limited excavations. The geophysical survey revealed a number of significant high resistance anomalies believed to be related to the curtain wall and perhaps an interval tower or western entrance. However, there is some discrepancy between the positions of these anomalies and predictions from excavation. The geophysical response is difficult to interpret on account of the topography of the site and recent levelling.
