Full Description

SS 7515 3727. Linear positive earthwork c.2.0 metres wide and 0.5 metres high and extends for c.15 metres and is orientated northwest to southeast. The feature is best interpreted as a removed hedge bank marking the boundary of the triangular plantation shown in this location on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map.
