Aerial Photographic Interpretation (10 January 2014)

At least eight roundhouses, possibly of Neolithic date, have been recorded as cropmarks on oblique aerial photographs (RCAHMSAP 1995) some 150m NE of Chapelton. The roundhouses form a row and extend across a distance of about 190m. Seven comprise close-set pits arranged in a circle measuring between 11m and 16m in diameter, each containing a square arrangement of four large pits, while another is represented only by a setting of four posts. A number of large pits are scattered round about.
