Full Description

Ridge and furrow ploughing is visible in an area of grass amongst large patches of reeds on the south side of Horsen Hill. The visible area is 30 metres north to south, 20 metres east to west and the ridges are 1.4 metres apart. This may be the remains of a larger field system, traces of which are just discernible on Lidar images of the area, which show banks running northwest to southeast across the south side of Horsen Hill.
