Archaeology Notes

NT13SW 47 1395 3446.

'On the slight rise to the south of Ward Cottage is a badly mutilated oval enclosure, some 30m by 50m, with traces of two ditches and intervening banks. Quarry scoops and animal trampling have severely obscured any detail, but there may be an entrance to the N. Best seen from slopes of Tinnis Castle, and only than (as when discovered) in low light and frost.'

N Fojut and P Love 1986.
