Broad low scarp aligned north-north-east to south-south-west dividing a field at Cadworthy Farm. The scarp is circa 3 metres wide by o.5 metres high. At the northern end there is a clearance cairn circa 6 meters diameter abutting the northern boundary. The boundary kinks around the cairn indicating it is earlier than the former field boundary.
