Grid Ref : SX6450062530
Summary : Prob. BA settlement enclosures (2)

Enclosures (NR). (2)

Two probable Bronze Age enclosures situated on a west facing
slope at 290m OD about 70.0m from the River Erme.

The northern enclosure is in the form of an irregular pentagon,
some 23.0m across with walling of tumbled rubble, generally
2.0m wide and 0.6m high. The interior seems only partly cleared
of stone. Within the south side of the enclosure a poorly defined
platform of 6.0m diameter is probably a hut site. There is an
oddly inturned entrance on the north side with no external
track or terrace way leading to it.

The second enclosure (to the southeast) is D-shaped and measures
internally about 18.0m across with an entrance in the east side.
It has similar walling with one orthostat at the entrance on the
east side, and is up to 1.5m high, externally, on the lower
south side. The interior is fairly clear of stone and there
is no visible evidence of settlement, yet both enclosures appear to
be for habitation. Features may be concealed beneath the
unusually large amount of hill wash and build-up of peat
resulting from the steep situation.

Surveyed at 1:10 000 on MSD. (3)
