Full Description

A hollow way 4 metres wide and 0.2 metres deep, continuing the line of hollow way (MEM23958) 35 metres across the head of the combe was noted by Cornwall Council during a walkover survey of Burcombe and Wester Emmetts. The linking portion between them has been removed by water erosion and the hollow way itself now functions as a watercourse. [1]
