Notes

The remains of a cross dyke which survives as two short sections of earthwork either side of the metalled road to Spiers House. This road is well defined and cut through the cross dyke which is located on a slight rise. The cross dyke is orientated north west to south east and is formed by a bank and ditch with the ditch on the north eastern side. The bank is asymmetrical in profile with a steeper face on the side which merges with the profile of the ditch. The bank is 5 metres wide and up to 0.6 metres high with the ditch 3 metres wide and 0.4 metres deep. Thus in places the distance between the base of the ditch and the bank top is up to 1 metre. The section on the west side of the road is 10 metres long and has been truncated at its north western end by modern forestry operations. The section on the east side of the road is longer, measuring 25 metres and is considered to retain its original south eastern end. Scheduled.
