The part of the boundary shown in the present photograph (where it is visible as a low ridge leading directly away from the photographer's position) is only about 30 metres from the main road. The woods visible ahead are those on the western side of NS3778 : Carman Reservoir.
Carman Muir field system

A hitherto unreported system of old agricultural boundaries associated with Carman farmstead. Satellite imagery shows traces of furrows within this system. See LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view of the field system.

The farmstead see Link (in a Geograph article) was represented in the early twentieth century by Carman House (at c.NS37287858); see LinkExternal link for the remains of Carman House. See LinkExternal link for an enclosure where horses used to be sold. That enclosure, which is just to the north of Carman House, is apparently part of the same field system.
