Summary

Section of terraced track aligned roughly N-S on the w side of Kipscombe Combe. It is in field 140 and both ends are indistinct. The S end fades in an area of gorse and is possibly slighted by the later, modern track just uphill. The N end also fades out on the slope. Slumping on the side of the hill narrows the track. The track is about 70m long and 1.5 – 2m wide. It is not shown on any of the historic maps.
