Fence near Aucheneck trig point
Fence near Aucheneck trig point
The line of the fence marks a change in the pattern of enclosure in this area. The first-edition OS map (1864) shows boundaries running NW-SE, while the second-edition map (1899) shows the present E-W boundary represented by this fence.

One of the nineteenth-century boundaries can be seen, faintly, in the present view, at a distance; it is a linear feature, slightly darker than the rest of the field, beginning at a small reddish-brown tree on the right, running directly to the left, crossing the line of the fence about 200m from the photographer's position, and passing in front of the sheep.

Another of the original boundaries was much closer to the photographer's position, and is illustrated separately: NS4884 : Remains of a field boundary.
