Location :
Devon

Summary : A substantial medieval or post medieval ditch is visible as an earthwork extending across two fields south of North Molton Ridge, North Molton. Part of the ditch is depicted on the first edition Ordnance Survey map of 1891, suggesting it was still in use or only recently abandoned at this time, but its precise function remains uncertain. It may have been a trackway connecting the two roads which run east-west through the parish.
