Linear Features: United Kingdom

After an extensive survey of the United Kingdom a series of underwater linear features has been found.  With the exception of the first site, the following collection of underwater linear anomalies have not yet been identified to be artificial, dated or studied by the Scientific community.  Some of the images in this collection have been color enhanced to bring out detail.

Approximately 820 feet on the longest side and 630 feet on the shortest side.  Average width is approximately 15 feet.  This is the site of an ancient fish trap dated to be around 1,000 years old, found via aerial imagery in 2009.

This feature is approximately 285 feet on one side and approximately 285 feet on the opposite side.  The feature is approximately 30 feet wide.

This site sits along the edge of what appears to be a natural channel.  The line may have been a retaining wall of some kind.  It is approximately 870 feet long and varies in width from 10 feet to 13 feet wide.

The top right end of this feature can be seen with Google Earth on Dec. 31st, 2006.  The image has been enhanced with Photoshop to reveal the rectilinear line that is underwater.  It is approximately 551 feet on it's longest side and juts out into the water from the shoreline for approximately 411 feet.  It is over 20 feet wide and due to it's angular construction appears to be artificial in origin.

The perpendicular side of this feature to the shoreline is approximately over 1,000 feet long.  The line parallel to the shore is approximately 770 feet long.  It varies in width from approximately 20-30 feet.  Directly to the North of this feature is another linear feature that is stretching perpendicular from the shoreline into the water.

Leading from the beach of Benllech, this linear feature is perpendicular to the shoreline and is approximately 1770 feet long by 10 feet wide.  This feature is interesting because it is concealed by sand or does not exist in several places and seems to continue before disappearing into the sea.

The line closest to the shore is heavily damaged/eroded and is approximately 383 feet long by 12 feet wide.  The other side is approximately 400 feet long by 12 feet wide.

It is uncertain if the linear features are modern or ancient in origin.  If you have any information on the features in question, please send us a comment via e-mail or post a comment to this article.

I read about these in the newspapers. They are ancient fishing boxes with the goal of coralling the fish. The idea is that you chase fish close to shore and towards these structures. The fish try and swim out to sea, but are blocked by the posts.

I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I do not know who you are but certainly you're going to a famous blogger if you aren't already ;) Cheers!

Sites 2, 4, 5 and 9 are typical fish trap shapes. I am an archaeologist and have recently completed a desk-top survey of fish traps around the Welsh coast using modern aerial photographic coverage and historic mapping. They look remarkably similar to some of the ones I identified.
