Smeuse is one word, though given you're asking just days after Landmarks by Robert Macfarlane was published, you might already know that.

  • Smeuse! Fantastic - my husband heard it on the radio - presumably discussing Landmarks by Robert Macfarlane - but we couldn't locate the word. Thanks so much.
