Linear feature, Widdop: a curious wall of erect slabs curving down the valley side edging a one-time re-entrant.
The reservoir water here, as elsewhere, has stripped off the peat and soil to leave the prehistoric land surface exposed.
Where erosion has continued the slabs have fallen over. This linear feature may have been a ritual boundary
or the basis for a stock-proof barrier to keep animals away from the stream people were using.
