Archaeology Notes

NC82SE 10 8669 2034

(NC 8669 2034) Enclosure (NR)

OS 6" map, (1962).

Centred at NC 866204 on a SW - facing slope there are two hut circles ('A' & 'B'). 'A' was noted by the previous field investigator (Information from OS (W D J) 25 May 1961); it is large and prominent, built onto the slope in the SW. It measures 13.5m SE-NW by 10.0m within a wall spread to 3.5m. The entrance is in the SE. 'B' is apparent as a strongly constructed platform built up on the SW side. It measures 13.0m in diameter within a low spread wall. The entrance is in the SE. An apparently artificial arc of scarping occurs 25.0m to the W. Whether it constitutes the remains of a hut or is simply a lynchet is impossible to judge with certainty from the evidence. The indications of contemporary cultivation are slight, with only one or two clearance heaps around 'A'; elsewhere the ground is generally of a smooth stone free nature. Surveyed at 1:10 560.

RCAHMS 1911, visited 1909; visited by OS (J B) 7 March 1977.
