Summary : Footpaths of probable post-medieval origin are visible on aerial photographs as earthworks on the north-facing combe slopes above Pennycombe Water, between Pennycombe Wood and Chibbet Ford. Intersecting earthworks may indicate several phases of path are present, but it is likely that these include continuations of paths to the south-east, marked on the the first edition Ordnance Survey map.
More information : Footpaths of probable post-medieval origin are visible on aerial photographs as earthworks on the north-facing combe slopes above Pennycombe Water, centred on circa SS 83763723 between Pennycombe Wood and Chibbet Ford.
The intersecting course of some of these earthworks may indicate that several phases of path are represented and it is likely that these include continuations of paths to the south-east, marked on the first edition Ordnance Survey map.
