Pretty picture, but could you explain what ‘The Rig’ is please Besoekere?

Ah, that’ll be The Roman Ridge, AKA earth works north of Rotherham.

With pleasure. We call it The Rig or the Roman Rig. It’s slang for The Roman Ridge which was a Roman road. The Romans were prodigious road builders and noted for their direct straights. The part of it we walk is near York Road.

I see, thankyou.
