Notes

A Bronze Age stone hut circle settlement, two associated enclosures and three round cairns located on a natural hillside terrace 170 metres west of the confluence of Swindale Beck and Hilton Beck. The stone hut circle settlement includes the turf covered footings of a stone hut circle measuring 11 metres by 9 metres with an entrance on its western side. Attached to the south side of the hut circle is a small rectangulart stone walled stock pen measuring 10 metres by 9 metres externally with an entrance at its north western corner. Attached to the western side of this is a second, slightly larger, stock pen with an entrance on its western side. A short distance east of the hut circle there are two adjoining stone walled enclosures; the larger measuring 17 metres by 15 metres, the smaller measuring 12 metres by 15 metres. A little to the east of these enclosures there is an alignment of three round cairns between 4 metres to 6 metres in diameter and up to 0.6 metres high. Scheduled.
