Notes

A late prehistoric enclosed settlement, occupying a natural terrace overlooking the River Aire in Crosley Wood. The enclosure is an approximate oval, 80 metres long and 65 metres wide. It has a rubble bank, of which some stretches are faced with orthostats. Other stretches may also have originally been so faced, but the orthostats have been removed in the past, leaving a low rubble bank. Excavation in 1964-5 showed that the enclosure consisted of two lines of orthostats with a sandstone rubble infill, forming a wall 3 metres wide. The wall survived to a height of 0.5 metres. Scheduled.
