Furrows on Millburn Muir :: Shared Description

About 13 hectares of moorland on Millburn Muir, immediately above present-day farmland, are marked by furrows that are oriented WNW-ESE, and spaced about 3.6 metres apart. Unless they happen to be signs of much earlier cultivation, they are likely be relics of afforestation, or at least of preparations for it: while OS maps do not record woodland in those areas, the furrows are aligned with the rows of trees in the existing small square of woodland beside the Millburn Muir Transmitter.
