Notes

An unenclosed hut circle settlement on level ground at the northen point of a moorland ridge at the north edge of the North York Moors. The settlement is visible as a pair of conjoined hut circles which are defined by penannular earth and stone banks 1.5-2 metres wide. Each bank has a break at the north east which would have been the entrance to that hut. The interior of the larger hut circle is at a lower level than the exterior ground surface and measures 6 metres in diameter. The surrounding bank stands up to 0.4 metres high. The second hut circle lies on the south west side of the first with the interior at a lower level measuring 5 metres in diameter. The surrounding bank stands up to 0.3 metres high. Running in a north to south direction are a number of tank tracks caused by military activity during World War II. Scheduled.
