Archaeology Notes

NG82NW 9 849 291.

In the area centred on NG 849 291 there are 2 hut circles ('A' and 'B').

'A' is a circular level platform, 9.5m in diameter, edged by traces of a wall about 1.5m thick. No entrance evident.

'B' is set into the slope and measures 8.5m within an overgrown wall which is 1.4m thick in the S where both inner and outer faces are visible. Entrance not evident.

Below the huts and in the area to the N, are several weathered-down lynchets possibly from contemporary cultivation. There are also a few shieling bothies in the area.

Surveyed at 1/10,000.

Visited by OS (J M) 5 June 1974.
