Activities

Field Visit (7 April 2014)

This animal trap is set into a steep east facing slope overlooking the Funtack Bridge. Comprising a pit, it measures 3.6m in diameter at the surface and 0.7m at the base, and is up to 1.2m in depth at the back, but only 0.4m at the front. There is a low bank of upcast material, 1m in thickness and 0.2m high on the downslope edge. 1

This feature is similar to others discovered in the parish (NH73SE 34, NH73SE 36; NH73SE 37; NH73SE 39), and is most likely to have been used to trap foxes.
