Summary : Field boundaries of probable post-medieval date are visible on aerial photographs of the 1940s onwards as earthworks on the northern slopes of Bye Hill, Winsford parish. The boundaries are not marked on the first edition Ordnance Survey map and probably therefore predates 1890. They probably represent a failed or abandoned episode of enclosure, probably of the post-medieval period.
