Ridge and Furrow

Has anyone ever noticed the unusual slopes and shape of the field behind Denview? Did you know that the field has Broad Ridge and Furrow, which was a system of ploughing used in the Middle Ages – this site is recorded as dating back to 1100 – 1500AD. It has been preserved due to it being used as grazing land.

I think it’s pretty unique, and when the fog lies in the furrows it’s particularly stunning! Especially next to the Ancient Woodland that it’s sat in situ with for so long.
