Historic Environment Office in Exeter
On Tuesday 11th January 2011, Penny Cunningham (Project Officer) and nine volunteers spent the day working our way through the vast quantity of data referring to the Poltimore Estate that is held in the Historic Environment Record (HER). The day was very productive and I think that we managed to record most of the data - although I am sure we will be back!
We had an opportunity to look at the black and white aerial photographs taken by the RAF in 1947 and compare them with earlier maps. We also recorded all the archaeological investigations, surveys and find spots listed in the HER.
