Archaeology Notes

NY47NW 11 424 786.

NY 424 786. Cropmarks on an air photograph (CUCAP 1973) reveal the ditches of an enclosure, measuring about 50m by 50m, 370m WSW of Harelawhill farmhouse. The NNE, WNW and SSW sides are straight, but the ESE side bows outwards. There is nothing to be seen on the ground.

RCAHMS 1981, visited November 1980.

This enclosure is roughly square, with rounded angles. It measures about 50m across within a ditch up to 2m in breadth. The entrance is probably on the E, but the whole of this side is obscured by an old stream gully.

Information from RCAHMS (SPH), 20 February 1996.

Listed as (rectilinear) enclosure.

RCAHMS 1997.
