A linear hollow in Lynford Park (NHER 30470). It measures 15m by 8m by 0.8m deep. It has gently sloping sides and a concave base.
The hollow is probably associated with sand and gravel extraction. It is likely minerals gathered from here were used to make adjacent tracks. It could be a parkland feature, although it is equally possibly it post dates the conversion of the park to forestry.
