HER Number:MDV56844
Name:VERMIN TRAP in the Parish of Shaugh Prior

Summary

Vis=4/4/1995 (gerrard) animal run survives as a v-shaped gully situated within a partially enclosed hut settlement. Survives as a v-shaped gully and each arm is 1m wide and 0.3m deep. The n arm measures 15m long and the s arm is 7m long. Material upcast during its construction forms a 1m wide and 0.2m high bank on the downslope side. This gully probably represents part of a complex system of animal runs in which rabbits and vermin could have been trapped. This gully was probably once connected to another lying to the ne, but the relationship has been lost as a result of destruction in the area caused by the building of a track (mpp).
