Notes

A cairnfield in Hagg Wood, Honley. It is situated at the end of a plateau. There are nine cairns, between 3 metres and 8 metres in diameter, and up to 0.6 metres high. Towrads the southern end of the cairnfield are two parallel rubble banks which run approximately south east-north west, from the scarp at the edge of the plateau to the west edge of the wood. The rubble banks are about 3 metres wide and up to 0.3 metres high. The cairnfield also includes two circular features which may be hut circles. The southern of these is a slight hollow with a level base about 12 metres in diameter. The northern one is largely obscured by holly trees, but is visible as a rubble bank where it is crossed by a path at the northern end of the cairnfield. Two of the cairns were excavated with finds consisting of two barbed and tanged arrowheads, flint fragments, waterworn stones, and charcoal. Scheduled.
