Prehistoric linear boundary, Bridestones Moor

A small section of the 930m long prehistoric earthwork forming the boundary between Bridestones Moor and Dalby Forest. The archaeologists are concerned that encroachment of the forest is causing damage to the ditch and earth banks. So the winter job of clearing the trees is now in its third year, and the end is in sight. Work will cease before the spring to avoid any disturbance to nesting birds.

  1. Thank you for this, very interesting. I have walked alongside but would not have recognised it as anything other than a simple ditch for drainage purposes. I now know different! I have also spent an interesting hour’s perusal after following your link to Historic England.
