Side cut

Yesterday’s photograph was of a horse-drawn bucket or scoop. Here’s an example of the sort of side cut that that implement might have made. The hill slopes (approximately) from top left to bottom right and, what is now the track, was flattened off by removing soil from the slope. (The original bridle track wouldn’t have been quite this wide – it was, we believe, widened at a later date by a small bulldozer).
