Hertfordshire,England,UK view map

The bailey ditch.The bailey rampart is on the rhs.Obviously,over the last thousand years,weathering has somewhat filled in the ditches and levelled the earthen ramparts,but the line of the ditch is still apparent,looking straight into the picture,into the shadede area under the trees,roundingbehind the trees to the rhs.
