SK 206 617. Earthworks visible on aerial photographs taken in 1957 were identified as strip lynchets but were later considered to be old tracks and land-creep in 1966. (1,2). The features were reinterpreted as strip lynchets on a field survey in 1966. Three medieval cultivation strips were created to follow the contour on the locally steep slope here, some parts of which were too steep to be utilised. There are five lynchets which are each up to about 1 metre high. These strips were once part of the medieval field farmed from the settlement of Gratton. (3).
