HER Number:MDV26617
Name:Reaves within Bagtor inner enclosure

Summary

Several parallel reaves follow the prevailing axis, with some sub-division creating smaller plots. Some of these plots are a little irregular in shape and may be later add-ons, or the result of alteration. A steep lynchet running across the enclosure and a total of 17 clearance cairns are also evidence of later activity. A hut circle (MDV 62342) sits at the centre of these reaves. Condition is Stable but in an area where trees are spreading rapidly
