Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

A sketch plan endorsed 'Southwood Common March 1775' shows a line continuing south-eastwards from the road to Ticknall near Southwood House. It is marked 'Ancient Double Ditch made by the Priory Tenants' and separated 'Caulk Inclosures' from an area of Southwood Common that was in dispute at that time. The 'double ditch' is now a footpath, and is probably an old route, the road being realigned to the south-west when the disputed part of the common was incorporated into Calke parish. (1)
