Notes

A discontinuous linear dyke extending east to west for 4. 3 km below the edge of the escarpment forming the south of the Vale of Pickering. The dyke includes a bank up to 6 metres wide and 0.7 metres high with a ditch lying to the north up to 4 metres wide and 0.6 metres deep. The dyke broadly follows the contour of the hillside. It is cut through in several places by forest tracks and hollow ways. The dyke is part of a wider system of boundaries extending across the Vale of Pickering. Other dykes extend north to south. They divided the terrain into discrete units for social and agricultural purposes. Scheduled.
