Cross-Ridge Dyke



This earthwork runs for about 200m and cuts off a tongue of moorland. The promontary defined by the dyke contains the Herd Howe round barrow as well as a smaller barrow, Robin Hood's Butts. Also within this promontary are the foundations of a pair of round houses that may be Iron Age in date.
