Full Description

Settlement and Field System (NR) (5 huts shown)
OS 1:10,000 map, (1970)

A settlement of five huts ('A'-'E') within a relatively large field system of numerous heaps, ruinous field walls and occasional lynchets. All dimensions are between wall centres.
'A' (RCAHMS 1911) is 15.5m SE-NW by 13.5m. The curving inner wall forms an enclosure measuring 11m NW-SE. The chamber illustrated in W arc is extant, but because of heavy peat growth, it is uncertain whether it is contemporary with the hut. The other chambers were not traced.
'B' (RCAHMS 1911) is a small circular enclosure 5m diameter.
'C' is 10.5 SW-NE by 10m. The entrance is in SW.
'D' measures 13m E-W by 10.5m. The wall, spread to 2.5m in W, expands to 3.5m at entrance in E.
E (RCAHMS 1911) is 12.5 ESE-WNW x 10m. Entrance is in ESE.
Revised at 1:10,000. RCAHMS 1911, visited 1909; Visited by OS (WDJ) 19 April 1964 and (JB) 18 August 1975.
