Field systems ancient and older
Field systems ancient and older
This is taken at the base of Cawden as the Dales High Way path approaches Gordale. I am looking up the hill at the fields currently in use as pastureland and the nearest field shows in its 'terracing' possible evidence of cultivation done in narrow strips (or selions) as was the system in pre-enclosure medieval times.
