Miledyke Wood 1856 OS 6 inch 1st edn

Sc or SSE mile + Sc or SSE dyke

‘A wall at a distance of a measured mile’? If this is the meaning, then it would be measured from a local focal point, perhaps from the village of Lundin Links. For the different types of miles in Scotland, see mile in Elements Glossary, above.

    ‘A wood chiefly composed of oak, beech and elm trees planted nearly half a century ago [i.e. early 1800s] on the Estate of Lundin. It is the property of Standard Life Assurance Company’ (OS Name Book 96, 60).
