Archaeology Notes

NN86SW 15 8075 6043.

At NN 8075 6043, levelled into a SE-facing hillside, is a circular stone-walled enclosure measuring 18.0m between the centres of a wall spread to 2.5m which survives only around the W half. The E half is defined by a scarp partially overlaid by modern clearance which also intrudes into the centre of the enclosure. Despite its large size, the levelling of the interior suggests that this is a hut circle, possibly contemporary with the field system to the N (see NN86SW 2).

Surveyed at 1/2500.

Visited by OS (A A) 31 October 1974.
