A cattle creep
A sheep creep

A cattle creep is a small, field-to-field access for farm animals, usually to allow passage beneath an obstacle such as a road, canal, or railway embankment.[1]

As they are intended primarily for cattle or other livestock, cattle creeps usually have a low head height and are uncomfortable for humans to use.[2]

On Dartmoor, in south west England, the term sheep creep is used to describe a purposely constructed gap in the base of a drystone wall, commonly topped with a granite lintel. The gap allows sheep to pass from field to field, but is deliberately too small for cattle or ponies. [3]
