Dead Woman's Ditch - Mountain Bike Trails


Dead Woman's Ditch is an earthwork and listed scheduled ancient monument in Over Stowey, Somerset, situated on the Quantock Hills. A linear earthwork consisting of a bank with a ditch along the W side running for approximately 950m from a spring known as Lady's Fountain across Robin Uprights Hill and down into Ramscombe. The earthwork is presumed to be of prehistoric origin and is of unknown purpose. The earthwork has been cut through by later tracks and a road. It is badly eroded in places and is on the English Heritage 'At Risk' Register. Dead Woman's Ditch is sometimes associated with the Murder of Sarah Walford by her husband John in 1789 but the name predates the murder, appearing on an earlier map.
