Full description

Unknown, MIGRATED RECORD - MONUMENT PROTECTION PROGRAMME DATA (Migrated Record). SDV331.

The w animal run survives as a 22m long, 0.8m wide and 0.2m deep gully. Material upcast during the construction of this run forms a bank on the n side of the gully and this survives as a 1.5m wide and 0.2m high bank. The e animal run measures 85m long, 0.8m wide and 0.3m deep and at its w end runs close to and parallel with the ditch of a pillow mound. Material upcast during the construction of this run forms a 1.5m wide and 0.2m high bank on the n side of the gully. This is site no 102 019 in the national trust upper plym inventory. Another length of animal run is shown and described in the national trust upper plym inventory as site no 102 009 but this only a modern animal path. These gullies probably represent part of a system of animal runs in which rabbits and vermin could have been trapped (mpp).
