Ridge and Furrow ploughing in the parish of Ryton on Dunsmore
Ridge and furrow ploughing is evident on aerial photographs in 3 fields immediately to the east of Ryton Woods.
1 Ridge and furrow ploughing evident on aerial photographs in 3 fields immediately to the east of Ryton Woods was mapped as part of the English Heritage National Mapping Project. The northern pair of fields is seperated by a double headland. The ploughing in these two fields is very straight and regular which may indicate that it has been cultivated using steam driven machines.
