Farley Mount Enclosure (Enclosure) by UncleRob How old is that bank out of which the yews are growing? Well, as old as a middle-aged yew tree, which rules out the last 200 years at least, and possibly much longer. This appears and disapears at exactly the points where one would expect to see the enclosure ditch-and-bank appear on t'other side of the path.

This path, incidentally, is the one that passes close to Withering Corner bowl and saucer barrows. They are clearly Bronze Age by typology. Is the enclosure even older?
