Interpretation

Category: Not a row.  This is a double faced wall leading from one field boundary to another.  In places the stones are touching.  It is perhaps significant that the eastern end of the feature coincides with the start of a ditch associated with the other field boundary.  Along part of the length of the feature it is clearly formed by a rubble bank. This feature is a field boundary and probably of historic date.

Photographs

The stones are set very close together and clearly form part of a field boundary which may either never have been finished or has been robbed. View from east (Scale 1m).

The rubble bank forming part of the feature stands to the left of the ranging rod. View from west (Scale 1m).

The southern side of the rubble bank is very obvious at this point. View from south (Scale 1m).

The easternmost stone stands opposite the point where a ditch associated with another bank starts. View from south.
