Field clearance heaps.
Visited by OS (W D J) 28 June 1963.

In this area of heather surrounded by cultivation or formerly cultivated land, are about a dozen stone clearance heaps within smooth, stone-free ground. Their appearance and disposition indicate the type normally associated with hut circles. Presumably this minor field system covered a larger area but is destroyed.
