Full Description

A heather- and turf- covered mound, orientated east-northeast by west-southwest, forming a linear boundary dyke approximately 1m high by 2m wide. The remains of this boundary were much more substantial than MHG54003 which could suggest that it postdates the other boundary dyke and indeed it matches a boundary on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map. This is likely to be a result of post-Medieval enclosure and cultivation. <1>
