In Sheffield and Barnsley districts this zone is concentrated in the west and was often enclosed from open moorland. This land was enclosed in the 18th and 19th century, often under the authority of a Parliamentary Award. Within the districts of Doncaster and Rotherham the zone is more widely dispersed and takes in former moorland, commons and medieval open town fields. Surveyed enclosure landscapes are characterised by straight sided enclosures with hedged or drystone wall boundaries. There are often contemporary straight roads running through these field systems. The landscape is punctuated by dispersed farmsteads that are often contemporary with the enclosure.
