An approximately 400 metre long section of reave in the northern sector of Fernworthy Forest. The feature is within dense plantation but shows as a linear anomaly on a 2013 liDAR image. The reave runs NW to SE between the outer plantation wall at SX64778497 and SX65048467. It aligns with a similar reave which survives on Stonetor Hill to the north.
