Ackergill Index

The Ackergill Duck Decoy was used for shooting wildfowl in Victorian times.  It is made up of a large circular wall enclosing ground and a moat crossed by several small bridges then another moat and an island in the centre connected by another bridge.  Water draining from the fields feeds into the moats (preventing stagnation) and out at the lower end draining through the sand dunes to the sea.
