More information : Ridge and furrow of probable post-medieval date can be seen as low earthworks on aerial photographs of the 1940s centred on circa SS 80423213, about 300 metres to the north of Blindwell Farm, Twitchen parish.
The earthworks run across the contours of the upper slopes of Twitchen Ridge, between an elevation of 370 to 390 metres and are regularly arranged, between 5 to 6 metres apart.
It is unclear whether the ridge and furrow is cut by or respect the earthwork remains of a post-medieval trackway approaching a disused quarry to the south-east. They cannot be seen on the latest images available on Google Earth available at the time of survey, and have probable now been levelled. (1-2)
