Archaeology Notes

NH54SE 37 577 444

NH 44/54 OS 577444 No. 34 Holm Wood.

Forestry track crosses over what appears to be a levelled cairn on top of a ridge, with what may be the remains of a very low wall of soil and/or stones running in a southerly direction for 28 yards to a swampy area. Further N.E. towards the east boundary fence there is an unusual group of half-a-dozen short parallel ditches running downhill which is probably forestry.
