Remains of a boundary
Remains of a boundary
The remains of an old boundary are easily visible here, in the form of a low ridge receding directly from the photographer's position. Click on the end-note title for other views. As noted there, the boundary can be followed for about 300 metres from its western end. Beyond that, it fades away. Satellite imagery suggests that it may continue to about NS45108132, but that is by no means certain.

For the distant background, see NS4481 : Remains of a boundary. The present picture was taken from about 60 metres further along the ridge.
Remains of a boundary
The remnants of an old boundary can be seen as a low, indistinct ridge, which begins at about NS44558102, and which extends ENE from there for at least 300 metres. Individual stones are visible at a few places along its length; these are probably from within the ridge.
