Summary : Bronze Age field system in Rushmore Park, surveyed by Toms between 1912 and 1924. Field investigations in 1954 found the lynchets clearly visible on the western slopes. The lynchets followed the contours of the hill near South Lodge.
More information : (Centred ST 954175) A group of lyncheted fields surveyed by
Toms between 1912 and 1924. He believes them to predate the Bronze Age barrows (ST 91 NE 3) and the Late Bronze Age pastoral enclosure at South Lodge (ST 91 NE 9). Crawford, however, considers that the
lynchets cannot be older than the earthworks. (1-2)

The lynchets are clearly visible on the western slopes, and near the
South Lodge they follow the contours. (3)
