Full Description

SK 196 772: FOOLOW, ENCLOSURE. Linear bank forming a rectangular enclosure, running parallel to Bradshaw Lane and turning west above the springline for 100m. (1). It seems likely that this enclosure is actually part of the lynchet (recorded as feature 23 in the survey) which is a former boundary and not an enclosure. (2).
