Full Description

Post Medieval trackways in a braided pattern were seen as earthworks and mapped from aerial photographs. The trackways (centred at ST 0160 3459) are aligned N-S and are probably earlier versions of the track that leads down the small valley containing Sminhays Cottages and Lower Sminhays Farm. These trackways cut earlier ones (MMO436) which are on a different alignment. [1]
