Page 227, Mr Horsley:-
...
"STANWICKS, according to some, signifies the same as Stane wegges, that is, a place upon the stones, or a stoney way. Here the person where I lodged told me that the wall had passed through his garden; and that they hit upon it, and got stones from thence when they dug and enclosed his garden. The ditch, therefore, which appears so distinctly to the west of the village, between it and the river Eden, and which seems to lie pretty much in a line with this garden and the track of the wall, must, I think, be Severus's. ..."
