(SX 64486048) Hut circle (Not shown on Authority 1) (2)

Centred SX 64426049. This settlement consists of 9 hut circles
and the remains of 3 probable enclosures, on a gentle, well
drained west facing slope, at 265.0m above OD, within Lower
Piles, a probable Medieval newtake, whose walls and clearance
heaps overlie it.

'A' SX 64476050. The remains of this enclosure comprise of
sub-circular arc of walling, 1.4m wide, with a hut circle, internal
diameter about 7m, which has been used as a dump for field
clearance. A newtake wall overlies both the enclosure wall and
hut circle.

'B' SX 64366050. The remains of this enclosure forms a
semi-circular arc of double-faced orthostatic walling, 1.0m wide,
with a terraced, sub-rectangular hut, or possibly yard, 5.7m
by 5.4m internally, with orthostatic walling, built against the
inner face. They are truncated on the west by a newtake wall.

'C' SX 64376047 to SX 64406051. This length of lynchetted walling,
linking two probable type 2 hut circles, average internal
diameter 7.0m, is probably the remains of an enclosure. The wall
and the huts have been used as dumps for field clearance.

The five freestanding, terraced, probably Type 2 hut circles,
average internal diameter 7.0m are in very poor condition, two
have been partly cleared and three have been used as dumps for
field clearance.

No evidence of cultivation associated with the settlement can
be identified. (Type 2 huts, SX 56 NE 71).
