Iron Howe

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


"The most interesting of these groups (cairns), which are well worth a visit, are those around Iron Howe, on the southern tip of Cow Rig, between Parci Gill and Arnsgill on Snilesworth Moor, 900 to 1,025ft. OD. Here are plots and enclosures and over 300 cairns, including a strange, elongated construction joining two cairns about 25ft apart.
There is a total of 1 1/4 miles of walling, probably field boundaries".
