Full Description

A walkover survey in August 2009 identified a low drystone dyke running immediately west of the present boundary fence. The dyke is broad and noticeably battered, a style which suggests an early 19th century date. This type of dyke probably represents early improvements when the present field boundaries were laid out. <1>
