Archaeology Notes

NO06SW 10 0324 6364.

At NO 0324 6364 are two circular stone-walled huts, with stone clearance heaps from contemporary cultivation to the W, N, and E.

'A', on a knoll, is scarcely visible. It measures about 9.0m in diameter and has traces of an entrance gap in the SE.

'B', just below 'A' and to the NE, measures c. 11.0m in internal diameter. Where best preserved at the entrance in the SE, the wall is spread to 3.5m and shows several inner facing stones. It is destroyed in the W by a later wall and a track.

Surveyed at 1:2500.

Visited by OS (AA) 22 February 1974
