Notes and interpretation

Southern boundary bank of Beachamwell Warren runs from grid reference TF 78879 07617 – but the two spurs – perhaps start of double bank – are difficult to interpret. The southern spur may be part of the bank that is visible close to Ride 105 at grid ref TF 78678 07460. Immature firs are planted along the bank and are marked for thinning. Generally the bank is in excellent condition.

The eastern end of the bank abuts a ride that marks the end of FC owned land and the former eastern boundary line of Beachamwell Warren. However the surveyed boundary bank does not curve northwards to join the remaining and, in part, substantial warren boundary bank that runs northwards along the parish boundary.
