Ridge and Furrow Fields near Tring, Hertfordshire :: Shared Description

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.
