Earsdon, ridge and furrow
Agriculture and Subsistence
Ridge and Furrow
Extensive ridge and furrow is visible as earthworks and cropmarks in the fields to the north and west of Earsdon. Most of these plough ridges are broad and are likely to be of medieval origin, but some of the narrower ridge may be of post medieval origin. Areas relating to this HER number have now been levelled.
