Notes

A Bronze Age enclosed hut circle settlement with outlying hut circles. An enclosed settlement of 0.6 hectares with further hut circles and two hut platforms to the northeast situated on a south-east facing slope at 350.0 m OD.The walling of the enclosures averages 2.0m wide and 0.6m high.All the huts are of type 1 and in poor condition with levelled interiors except the five furthest from the enclosures, to the northeast. Most have southern entrances and their internal diameters vary from 2.0m to 4.0m, with walling averaging 1.6m wide and 0.6m high. The huts within the enclosure are integrated with the walling and the majority appear to have preceeded the enclosures. Two yards at SX 63566425 and SX 63616430 are attached to the enclosure. Hut platforms are at SX 63636478 (not portrayed at 1:10 000). There is no associated field system or plots.
