Archaeology Notes

NG 5294 1841 A dispersed group of 5 stone built shielings.

At the centre of the depression is an oval cell on the summit of a very green mound. The cell measures 4.0m by 3.0m over tumbled walls. There is no visible entrance.

16.0m to the east, against a rocky outcrop, are the very disturbed remains of 3 single cells, each 2.0m diameter.

30.0m to the north of the central cell is a 2.0m diameter stone cell which has walls 0.6m thick and no visible entrance.

Martin Wildgoose, George Kozikowski and Steven Birch, 1997.
