MEM23963 - Post-Medieval Drainage Ditch Extending South Along Drybridge Combe (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
A rush-filled ditch c.1m wide with a substantial bank c.1.5m wide on the downslope side was noted at SS 75912 37967 where it cuts the EBC12(45) boundary. The feature follows the contour of the side of Dry Bridge Combe southwards towards the MSO6936 complex of mine workings. It is most likely related to 19th century mining operations in the area though its precise function is unknown.
