Archaeology Notes

ND25SW 19 c. 239 547.

(Approx ND 239 547) 'On a piece of moorland about 1/4 mile N by W of Watten manse is a grassy mound which has been evidently removed to a considerable extent. Near the centre is a partial circle of boulders some 14 to 18ins in length and protruding to about the same extent above the turf. The diameter of the interior is 12ft and there appears to have been an entrance from the S. The character of this construction is not obvious.'

RCAHMS 1911, visited 1910.

This is an area of ploughed fields. Nothing significant was seen.

Visited by OS (J M) 9 March 1982.
