Full Description

There are a variety of earthworks surrounding Hickling including platforms, terraces, banks, hollow ways and ridge and furrow. They would appear to suggest that Hickling has either shrunk or shifted. The earthworks around Long Lane appear to represent a shift in the orientation of the village, as may the earthworks L7586 (1). (2)
