Description

Bank and parallel track running 50m NW from N edge of fields to the large erosion gully E of Little Hangman. At the edge of the gully another bank 010 turns NE along the edge of the erosion scar. Part of the feature is shown on the Tithe map, and all subsequent maps. NW Bank 2m wide by 0.5m to 1.2m high, variable. Track 2.2m wide. Probably late C18 or early C19 in date.
