Monument record MDR15404 - Field banks, River Dove, Hartington Town Quarter
Type and Period (2)
- BOUNDARY BANK (Roman to Medieval - 43 AD? to 1539 AD?)
- BOUNDARY BANK (Tudor to Georgian - 1500 AD? to 1800 AD?)
- None recorded
Two ploughed-down banks running parallel to each other across the narrow flood plain. They appear similar to those documented nearby (see SMR7030) but it is unclear if they are of a similar age or are later features that are part of the late-medieval to post-medieval enclosure of the valley. In the latter case, the boundaries were probably gone by the 19th century, as they are not marked on maps of 1804 onwards. (1)
