Moat Knowe

Building; Enclosure; Sheepfold

NT 77868 13723

On gently sloping ground to the N of Moat Knowe fort (NT71SW 24) there is a building, enclosure and circular sheepfold. The building measures 4.2m from NW to SE by 2.1m transversely within turf banks. Immediately to the SE there is a roughly rectangular enclosure, the W side of which extends from the W side of the building. It measures about 33m from SW to NE by 20m transversely; the partial remains of another possible enclosure lie about 13m to the SE. The sheepfold sits to the NE of the group and measures 14m in diameter over a low turf bank.
