A drystane dyke at Moat park
This area of Cally Woods is known as Moat Park. A nearby board contains the following information:-

"New Dykes For Old.
This section of drystane dyke [drystone wall] has been rebuilt to remind us of the changes that have occurred since Cally House was built in 1763.
Here, at Moat Park, a large field was enclosed by stone dykes for herds of cattle to graze. The parks, with clumps of trees planted on higher ground, formed part of the designed landscape. Tall boundary walls were built to maintain the privacy of the landowners whilst hahas and sunken walls were constructed to enhance the views from the big house to the grounds beyond."
