Studfold Ring



This from Stanhope White

"Not far from the Percy Rigg village, on Ayton Moor at NZ598114, is a square enclosure with rounded corners; the earthen wall have been almost eroded away, but it can be seen that there had been an internal ditch. This cannot have been a defensive work, and a similar structure in a far better state of preservation exists at Studfold Ring. The name implies an enclosure for horses and the internal ditch can be seen today in many open air zoos."
