Full Description

A walkover survey in 2008 identified a pronounced steep-sided drain, c.100m long, defining the south side of an arable field. It runs from the stone dyke on the east side of the field, taking runoff away from the arable ground, and continues to the west, eventually disappearing in marshy ground. It measures 0.40m in width and 0.30m in depth. <1>
