Dinosaur Wrote:ditches are by and large landscape divisions, defining eg. the inside and outside of a fort/castle, where one field starts and another stops etc. Small ditches are small ditches (unless they're bedding trenches for hedges....). Gullies are drainage features. If a ditch also drains water, as long as its still a boundary its a ditch.

i hate it when i agree with you
If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers
