This site is covered in sand most of the time, but a visit by Paul Humphries, revealed it to be exposed and suitable for further investigation. He has found possible medieval pottery and thinks this could be a 'Late Norse Settlement', only one of the houses being exposed, there may be several houses and a chapel. Further info. is awaited from Paul's survey.
