Young notes that lynchets are conspicuous at Sharplow by Tissington (1) although no lynchets were seen at Sharplow by the Ordnance Survey Field Inspector in 1966. (2).

Pronounced lynchets are recorded west of the A515 road at Tissington, SK 166517. (5). An extensive area of lynchets were recorded in a field north of Hollington End Farm during a field survey, varying in height from c.0.6m to 1m high. In addition, there was ridge and furrow extending into the field from under a field wall, part of a wall set into the slope with a slight platform in front of it, indistinct ridge and furrow, two banks c.0.4m high and a dew pond.
