Remains of a field dyke
A low ridge, all that remains of an old field dyke, leads directly away from the photographer's position, through the small bushes visible ahead, to more or less the point where the Highland Cow is standing; there, at a corner, the dyke turns to the north.

The ridge is easier to see when there in person than it is in a photograph. It can also be picked out on satellite imagery, with traces of cultivation evident on its northern side in the form of lines running NNW-SSE (for several hundred metres).

It is not clear whether this dyke is part of the field system Link that was associated with Wardhouse (whose ruins are in a strip of woodland just to the south), or whether it belongs to the field system of a neighbouring farmstead.
