Due to the overgrown vegetation it was decided to do a Spot Stint, as a linear stint together with photography would have been difficult. This spot was to give an idea of the ditch feature which is still in very good condition as we progress through the spinney.

Along this stint there is good evidence of individual ancient hawthorns close to the field side of the ditch and mixed woodland vegetation in the spinney.

Riding Spinney contains a lot of Dogs Mercury which is an ancient woodland indicator plant.
