Love these.... walking Maes Knoll the wondrous shield-like ground plan isn't apparent. But this highlights it perfectly. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Aye. Its so hard to get an idea of the shape from the ground. The field boundaries interest me, I presume most are medieval or later, but there are 3 fainter lines going at a diagonal which may predate them. juamei Posted by juamei

Maybe an overvivid imagination, but perhaps there's a concave arc of small equally spaced circular features predominantly in the field below the wooded/scrub topped ridge? Ends top R, beyond the holloway(?). Ta for the excellent comp anyway - didnt know about the opensourced Lidar, hope to spend extrapolation from my map obsession.

No worries, I enjoyed doing the comp! No idea re the circular features, just pits maybe?
