Where are the cord-riggs and what do they look like?

The latest comment on the BLOG was as follows ...

Q: "Any chance of a picture of the Chester cord-rigg? I looked at where I thought they might be on a recent visit, but couldn't see anything ..."

A: I hope these images are of help. I have identified the location of the cord-riggs on the aerial shot and highlighted their profile on the general site shot.

Also ...

Q: "How far apart are the ridges?"

A: Cord-riggs usually comprise of a series of narrow ridges less than a metre apart, formed as the result of cultivation and it is generally considered to date to the late pre-Roman Iron Age.

Thank you for those excellent photos - and posted so quickly too! They show the ridges so clearly. Will it be possible to preserve this surface, or will you be digging even deeper?

The cord-riggs will remain in-situ for the foreseeable future.
