MEM24142 - Possible medieval or post-medieval hollow way east of Emmett's Grange (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
- None recorded
SS 7597 3695, SS 7598 3680. Poorly defined linear earthwork up to c.10 metres wide trending roughly north to south. It may be a natural feature but its orientation, cross cutting the orientation of the local geology makes this less likely. Alternatively it may be the remains of a hollow way. If so, it runs into an area of rough, boggy ground at its southern end which may suggest an early date.  No features are depicted here on the 1st or 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey maps. [2,3]
