Lynchets in a field near Parkway Grange
Undated. View of Lynchets in a field near Parkway Grange in Foundry Lane. The lynchets can be clearly seen as raised mounds of earth, right. The lynchets have been caused by early farming methods on the slope, at least as far back as the medieval period. The term 'lynchet' comes from the old word of 'lynch' meaning an 'agricultural terrace.' The farmland would have been ploughed by teams of 8 oxen in the Middle Ages and the lynchets are likely to have been created by the plough over a long period of time. In the background, left, part of Parkway Grange can be seen. It is a tower block containing 87 residential units on 15 floors and was constructed in 1967. Image courtesy of John Garnett.
