Monument record MDR8355 - Paved path, north of Winster
Type and Period (1)
- PATH (Unknown date)
- None recorded
Historic paved path, showing in part through the grass. (1,2). There is a network of pathways in this area paved with gritstone slabs, although the slabs may not be present along some stretches. The paths were either frequently used access routes to lead mines or were important through routes and were paved because they passed across wet ground. The geology here is shale and the valley and slope are very wet at times. (3). The path is recorded on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map and therefore predates 1880. 94).
