Notes

The remains of a Bronze Age field system comprising lengths of linear field clearance banks and several small cairns. The field system occupies a small bluff of land overlooking the Sandyford Brook. It includes a 60 metre length of a substantial sinuous bank of turf and stones. This feature is interpreted as a prehistoric field bank, formed through the clearance of field plots on one or both sides of the bank. Vestiges of similar linear clearance can be identified nearby and it is likely that further remains survive below ground. The field banks incorporate several elongated cairns, while further cairns stand isolated from the field banks. Scheduled.
