Full description

Newman , P., 2001, Headland Warren Part 2: Medieval Settlement and Enclosures, 3-4, Figure 2 (Report - Survey). SDV360131.

The Medieval settlement consists of two ruined longhouses and associated small enclosures adjacent to the north side of a large tin streamwork which eaxtends eastwards form the Redwater valley. The northern edge of the streamwork truncates the settlement which was once likely to have been much larger. The building remains lie within a shallow natural hollow with access via a sunken lane on the eastern side which runs north-west parallel to a later enclosure and pillow mounds.
