Archaeology Notes

NO35SW 42 3116 5193.

(NO 3116 5193) Jervise (1865) mentions a souterrain long since destroyed near NO35SW 41. From an examination of the area Wainwright (1963) suggests that it was sited a little east of NO35SW 41, where there are two or three possible sites all close together. The site is tentatively plotted at NO 3116 5193, though this should not be taken to imply that its position is satisfactorily established.

A Jervise 1865; F T Wainwright 1963; Information from F T Wainwright.

The alleged site of this souterrain (Wainwright 1963) is in an area of rough ground on a SE-facing slope. There are many large boulders and slabs there but none form any identifiable structure.

See NO35SW 41.

Visited by OS (TRG) 12 January 1977.
