Monument record MDR3852 - Earthwork bank, south of Spring Wood, Harthill

Type and Period (2)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

Large earthen bank running south-east to north-west across the top of a hill. There is a possible second bank, which is less obvious which runs parallel to the south-west. (1,2). Identified by Bevan as one of a group of hollow-ways, all of which are deeply incised. They pre-date the enclosure of the moor, allowing access for pasturing livestock and passage across from north to south. They probably date from the post medieval or possibly as early as the medieval period. (3).
