Notes

A Medieval shieling settlement consisting of a group of five shielings of drystone construction, two of which are associated with adjacent stone-built enclosures, together with a D-shaped enclosure within which there is an outbuilding. Ironstone slag has also been found within the settlement and may indicate a bloomery site.
