Remains of a later prehistoric cross dyke on Far Black Rigg. The surviving section runs for 190 metres in a roughly north west to south east direction and comprises a ditch flanked by two parallel banks of earth and stone. This feature was mapped as part of the North York Moors National Park NMP, visible as earthworks on air photographs. The feature appears to be extant on the latest 2009 vertical photography.
