A perfect example of Strip Lynchets shows in this aerial photograph taken in Mayfield Staffordshire. Strip Lynchets are banks of earth that build up on the down slope of a field ploughed over a long period of time. There is some debate as to whether the strip lynchets were formed deliberately or accidentally, but however they were formed they are a distinctive feature of ancient British field systems.
