The map here says "strip lynchets". Google tells me that a strip lynchet is "A terraced field usually found on hillsides. Comprising a flat strip of land, called the tread, and a steep, scarped lynchet or edge, called the riser". I think they're fairly clear in the photo although I have to wonder, considering the amount of flatter land in the vicinity, why anyone would bother to build these.
