Cattle on Alnwick Farm

The low ridges on the field are the remains of ridge and furrow cultivation associated with the deserted village of Tiscott
The Chiltern Hills can be seen in the distance.
Ridge and Furrow Fields near Tring, Hertfordshire :: SP9113
Medieval farming involved large common fields which were divided into narrow strips, each a furrow long (hence the distance measure - a furlong). While this farming technique was abandoned several hundred years ago field signs can still sometimes be seen where there has not been deep modern ploughing.
