Full Description

A footpath or trackway through Stoke Wood, the larger and probably later of two paths recorded in this area. The trackway crosses the larger trackway known as the Priest's Path and continues downslope towards the combe bottom. The trackway is disused on the lower slopes below the Priest's Path. The track probably originates in Prickslade Combe and may relate to the development and abandonment of a settlement there. [1]
