Summary : A linear negative earthwork visible on aerial photographs to the south-east of Prescott may be the remains of a hollow way, potentially of medieval date. The hollow way is aligned upon gates or breaks in the field boundaries to the north and south, and appears to be part of a long-established network of farm tracks. It may also link Prescott with Stone Lane or the settlement of Stone itself.
