Full Description

SK 1388 9028: Ashton Moor, Enclosure: Irregular bank of stone and earth construction. (1) The above is part of a small system of abandoned fields as evidenced by a group of boundary banks and lynchets. The main part of the system forms an approximately rectangular field with the surviving field wall upslope. Within this boundary a gateway can be seen. In the area enclosed by the boundary are two short lynchets, probably formed by other boundaries. A ditch and bank boundary leads to a terraced trackway. Map evidence indicates that the main boundary was built between 1627 and 1808 and was abandoned between 1808 and 1880. (2)
