Full Description

Hollow-way leading to peat cuttings on the moor, leaving enclosed land via gateway. Fades away towards hamlet (see SMR 8298) before reaching a field wall, though it was unclear at time of report [1992] whether the wall had a gate for access. For a short distance at the top of the intake the wall overlays the hollow-way, showing that the routeway was in use before enclosure occurred between 1627 and 1808. The presence of a gate shows that the route was still in use during this time. The intake is called 'Peat Ridge' on a map of 1808, further supporting the hollow-way's use for peat transportation.
