Auchentibber Earthworks

How fast Auchentibber’s landscape is changing in 2019.

The upper fields, high above Blantyre, focusing around the derelict farm are fast transforming in Spring and Summer 2019 as earth is shifted around, levelling fields, infilling hollows and ponds and the like.

Hedgerows give way to new fences and the fields themselves ready to be reseeded or farmed. Somebody is going to a whole lot of time and expense. Whilst it looks much tidier, I hope none of the archaeology or old features have been compromised on this ancient landscape.

Given the history in this area for fly tipping and recent fires, I would like nothing more than to see Auchentibber Farm being a real farm again.
