Full Description

This well preserved dyke lies just within the present fenced boundary of the forestry, and probably predates the planting.
The overhead power lines from the power station will cross over this feature, but as long as a pole is not placed directly on the dyke, and stones are not removed from the dyke for packing, there should be no reason to damage it. <1>
