    Maybe. I am an amateur Landscape archaeologist and spend a lot of time just wandering about looking at the landscape

    Take a loook at Coal Pit Lane/Black Dyke/Hanson's Dyke on the Lancashire/Craven border - it is a massive linear earthwork 4 miles in length running in a direct line between Castle Haugh earthwork above Gisburn and Castercliffe above Colne. At the time of Heney 1 (1100-1135) it was said to be an 'ancient ditch'.For more details see: 'Journeys Through Brigantia' Volume One (Craven). Best regards

    We're away in Scotland for the next 2 weeks, but when next over Colne-way (I need to get some images of the St. Helen's Well & the Devil's Footprint on t' south edge of Pendle Hill), we'll have a look.

    All the best - Paul
