Tyne and Wear HER(7236): Byermoor, channel - Details
A steep valley or channel running roughly west to east from West Wood towards Fellside Road. The feature is 167m long, 30-40m wide and 10m deep. It is largely featureless and appears natural in origin, but its floor appears to be flattened into platforms at various points and the bottom section has a flattened floor and an associated bank running parallel with its southern lip. The upper part of the feature has been infilled, latterly by farm waste. The channel is on the same line as a trackway shown on Ordnance Survey first edition, and which still exists, through West Wood.
