Archaeology Notes

NY37NE 38 385 775 to 386 774

(Classified under 'Medieval and later settlements'). Situated to the WSW of a minor public road, 590m and 660m respectively SSE of Brockwoodlees steading (NY37NE 100) there are the footings of two buildings of clay-walled construction comparable to that still standing at Priorslynn (NY37NE 122.02). These two buildings (which have measured 8.6m by 3.9m and 12.7m by 3.7m respectively within walls about 0.6m thick) are all that now remains of the group of houses which the OS noted at Hillhousegate in 1857.
