Archaeology Notes

NH44SE 29 c. 475 423

NH 44/54 OS 475423? No. 92 Ruttle Wood.

A moss covered, very low, curved stone breastwork. It is 15 yards long and overlooks sloping ground to the north and was probably constructed as a butt for hunting purposes. A considerable distance to the N.E. there are two circular mounds or cairns 5 yards in dia¬meter and 12 yards apart. There are two other similar cairns scattered to the S.W. of the breastwork.
