SP2229 : Remarkable ridge and furrow

taken 8 years ago, near to Evenlode, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Remarkable ridge and furrow
Remarkable ridge and furrow
The ridges and furrows on each side of this field are running (approximately) north-south and match those in adjacent fields showing the effects of enclosure. What is remarkable is that the middle of the field has four isolated ridges and furrows running east-west. This is very well illustrated on Google maps, satellite view. Almost every furrow has reeds growing along the length evidencing the lack of drainage. The view is from the bridleway.
