Monument record MDR14102 - Linear earthwork, Watford Moor, Buxton

Type and Period (2)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

A linear earthwork is visible on Watford Moor on Google Map Aerial Photographs, and corresponds with an earthwork shown on the 2nd edition 25" OS map. A conjectured line would appear to link it up with two similar earthworks to the northwest and southeast, which have both been interpreted as unfinished and unauthorised 19th century railway cuttings [see SMR 31695 and 31196].
