Archaeology Notes

NC65SE 2 6552 5238 and 6552 5234

(A: NC 6552 5238; B: NC 6552 5234) Enclosure (sic) (NR)

OS 6" map, (1962)

Two enclosures were found during field investigation in the area where the RCAHMS (1911) note three hut circles. Both are heather-covered but quite prominent, consisting of earth and stone banks with 2m wide entrances in the E.

'A' is 15m in diameter with a strong bank 4m broad and 0.7m high.

'B' is 11m in diameter with a bank 2m broad and 0.3m high.

Visited by OS (J L D) 29 April 1960.

RCAHMS 1911, visited 1909.

The two enclosures have been ploughed through and planted over with trees, and specific features are lost. The level state of the remains indicates hut circles.

Visited by OS (J M) 19 July 1978.
