Site Description


NAR SH58SW12

A later Prehistoric type roundhouse settlement was recognised during developement in 1961. The site is now a caravan park.
A 9.0m diameter roundhouse is defined by a ruined wall, now a stony bank up to 1.2m high with an entrance on the east side. A second smaller roundhouse about 25m to the south is roughly 5.0m across, survives up to 0.4m high and also shows an east-facing entrance gap.
One or both of these buildings is said to have been part of a rectilinear walled settlement that included rectangular buildings.
