Notes

An enclosed area of moorland to the south of Halfway Wall which contains the remains of a medieval farmhouse, additional structures and associated enclosures. The area is partly covered by ridge and furrow representing medieval cultivation. The remains of the farmhouse are on the eastern side of the enclosed area and represent a roughly rectangular building of medieval date measuring 15 metres by 8 metres internally. To the north west of the farmhouse are the remains of possible stock pounds built across the line of a low wall bank which runs for 110 metres north and south across the enclosure. These remains appear as low earthworks. In the south west corner of the enclosed area is a D-shaped double enclosure represented by a low earthwork 15 metres across the interior and perhaps cut by the enclosure bank at a later date. Traces of ridge and furrow survive on its eastern side. Outside the enclosure bank on the north west side is an area of lynchet terracing with the earthwork remains of a possible rectangular building. Scheduled.
