Groundwater emerging from the relatively warm soil froze once exposed to the subzero air. However, subsurface flow forced more out onto the path, resulting in these flow structures.
Batty Green was one of the shanty towns occupied by workers constructing the railway and viaduct between 1870 (or 1869?) and 1875. I don't know whether the settlement was named after the green, or vice versa.
