A hollow way (chemin creux) at La Meauffe, Manche, France
Appearing like trenches dragged into the earth, sunken lanes, also called hollow-ways or holloways, are centuries-old thoroughfares worn down by the traffic of time.
There were sunken roads at the battles of Fredericksburg and Antietam, weren’t there? Suggests that, in the presence of heavy wagons and primitive drainage, you could get one of these in less than a hundred years.
