Monument record MDR13178 - Hollow way, Harewood Moor and Beeley Moor, Beeley

Type and Period (2)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

This major hollow way comprises a broad swathe of braids, many 0.5m to 1m deep. Where it winds down the main scarp on Beeley Warren, some are considerably deeper. At the top of the scarp there is a complex arrangement of braids cutting others going in different directions. To the east, the route can be traced for some distance, heading to Ashover. This route would have largely fallen out of use by 1824 at the latest, by which date the present lane that runs roughly parallel to it had been built.
