Site visited in April 1972. Penn Moor reave east runs from SX60306289 to SX60536293 a length of 200 metres. The reave runs eastwards from the Penn Moor settlement up to the modern erosion channel of the Ford Brook, it cannot be traced beyond this but it is possible that a modern wall marks the original line which would have taken the reave to the Prehistoric enclosures above Broadall Lake. The detailed description of the course of the reave is given but it has been much disturbed.
