 Additional Notes This unenclosed settlement is located just 250m SW of the two burnt mounds above the westward extension of Dicky Edge (recorded seperately) and may be associated with these sites. All the above features,ie the round house settlement, field system and the two burnt mounds, should be collectively considered as one settlement complex which is likely to be of Mid Bronze Age date.
