Full Description

Unable to date many of the features to a specific date, however, the ha-ha earthworks most likely date between 1700 AD and 1899 AD when the land was landscaped. The earlier agricultural earthworks are faint, with many having been ploughed out. Possible hollow-way features, however these are not clear. (1)
