The remains of a prehistoric unenclosed settlement, which comprises one or two hut circles, within an embanked sub-rectangular field plot at Lamb Crag. The monument was initially observed from the air and is clearly visible on aerial photographs. On the ground the field plot, approximately 50 metres by 60 metres, is traceable as a fragmentary bank 2 metres wide which survives up to 0.2 metres high externally on the south west side. The interior of the plot is terraced up to 0.5 metres deep into the hill slope on this side. The hut circle lies roughly in the centre of the plot and measures 8 metres in diameter. A curved fragment of bank to the south may represent a second hut circle. Scheduled.
