Full Description

Linear Boundary Dyke, NC 84769 11859 to NC 84937 11902.
Intersection of low, broad, peat turf boundary dyke, which has an associated watery ditch on its uphill, NW side, with modern plantation fence. It is around 1.5m wide and 0.4m high, and from this location trends 066 degrees, obliquely across a boggy, heather-covered, SE-dipping slope, to a slight bend at 284853 911902, where the ditch is 2m from the bank. From this location, N of the derelict house of Feature 165 (below) at Breac-achadh, it trends E to 284937 911902, where it ends 5m to the W of the existing access track, but would originally probably have joined with the peat turf bank of Feature 170 (below), directly opposite on the E side of the track, prior to the formation of the track in the 1950s. <1>
