Full Description

Hut circle marked on modern OS and 1st ed OS - HAW 8/2004

This site was visited as part of a walkover survey in April 2009. Site 5 in the survey report covers records MHG12205, MHG33746 and MHG33747. The hut circles are prominent grass-covered structures occupying level ground to the west of the road junction. These are marked on the 1st edition OS map, with the field system shown as being to the SE, but there are also field clearance piles and possible field boundary rickles to the north, adjacent to the embankment of the road. Some of these may be contemporary with what appears to be a truncated early modern enclosure north of the road but it is most likely that this ground was under cultivation during both time periods. <1>
