Full Description

NC66SW 10 630 630.
Sletell (name verified): a settlement of three crofts with associated enclosures and cultivation enclosed within a head-dyke, which was deserted "about 30 years ago" according to local sources. This is presumably a post-Clearance settlement though this could not be verified locally.
Visited by OS (NKB) 25 August 1978.
