Linear mound near the Greenock Cut :: Shared Description

The area near the Greenock Cut Link is crossed by many old field boundaries. However, far more prominent than most of them is a linear mound running from NS23117362 to at least NS23707391; it is 740m long (660m in straight-line distance). Like the other old field boundaries nearby, this mound pre-dates the Cut (which slices through it at NS23537383). The mound, a very substantial construction, appears to have been an important upper boundary (of an estate, or of land associated with a particular farm): the ground downhill of the mound is furrowed and subdivided, while the ground uphill of it is not.
