Just to put my mind at rest...

The thing in the background is about 80-100m long, earthy looking linear mound, in a landscape with many odd features.

But what keeps nagging at the back of my mind is the two ditch like features that appear t run under the mound. If they are ditches, then it sort of implies that the mound was ut there after the ditches, which makes it unlikely that it's a natural feature. But what would it be if it were man made?

There's no traces of mining or anything in the area, and we don't get prehistoric earthen long mounds in Northumberland (or so it is said).

Any ideas anyone?

Ta muchly,
