Broad Ridge and Furrow
Ridge and furrow survives as earthworks in pasture in fields north-west and south-east of Murton, notably at NZ 3270 7095, 3295 7071, 3302 7061 and 3290 7041. The aerial photographs also suggest the presence of other features, perhaps bell pits. At NZ 3298 7053 there is a small enclosure, with earthworks, perhaps ridge and furrow and the remains of Murton Cottage.
