Archaeology Notes

NG87SW 6 8118 7277.

'Hut circle c. 7m diameter, stone walled.'

R Wentworth 1989.

This hut-circle, previously described by R Wentworth (1989), was visited during the course of a pre-afforestation survey by J Wordsworth. The site is now obscured by a fallen birch tree. A number of clearance cairns lie to the W and a, possibly later, turf bank runs S from the hut-circle along the course of a former track and a small burn.

J Wordsworth (Wordsworth Archaeological Services) 5 October 1997; R Wentworth 1989; NMRS MS 961/23, no.30
