The strip lynchets of Bishopstone, Swindon :: Shared Description
Written by Brian Robert Marshall
The strip lynchets are the result of ancient cultivation methods. There is some debate as to whether they were formed almost by accident over time as the soil loosened by ploughing was acted upon by the forces of gravity and the weather, or were deliberately created to prevent slippage and erosion. There are many references to be found by searching for 'strip lynchets bishopstone'. Collectively the lynchets are marked as a field system on the maps.
