Restored drystane dykes
The board contains the following information:-

"The Stones Remain -
When the Forestry Commission purchased this land in the 1930's they planted the open ground with the trees you see today and many of the dykes became redundant.
No longer needed to prevent cattle from straying, the dykes in the wood fell into disrepair. Gradually the dykes have collapsed and the stones are being reclaimed by the land. The dykes mostly remain as moss covered stones snaking their way through the wood.
The Cally Boundaries Project has received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and LEADER to restore this section of dyke and other features of the Designed Landscape of Cally."
