Lynchet slope near Foundry Lane
Undated. View of a lynchet slope near Foundry Lane, evidence of medieval farming. A lynchet is a bank of earth which piles up over years of ploughing, usually on a hill slope. The area has a long history of farming which may even pre-date the middle ages. The farm land is mentioned in the Yorkshire Hundred, part of a country-wide investigation carried out in 1274-1275 during the reign of Edward I. At that time the land was held by the Templars of Newsam, and was gifted to them by William de Somervil and Walter de Kelingbec. Image courtesy of John Garnett.
