Hollow Way

Hollow Way

Hollow Ways indicate the route of ancient tracks, some of which date back to the early Iron Age. 


Over time and on certain terrain, wheels, hooves and the weather can erode  a road so much that the pathway becomes deeply incised into the landscape and the surface  falls way below the level of the surrounding field becoming   sheltered tunnel and hidden by the canopy of the hedge. Sometimes these tracks become metalled roads but, as they are too deep to be widened for modern traffic or too wide to be  farmed over, more often they survive as  footpaths or wildlife havens of tangled briars and brambles.
