John Barnatt seems to have binned his theory of the moor being divided, by the Bar Brook, into separate working and ritual areas after his survey of a few years ago.
The location of the Barbrook V ring cairn on the SW limits of the field system always caused me a bit of doubt over whether this was the case.....Barnatt andAinsworth's survey of the moor a few years ago turned up 5-6 barrows, which were previously thought to be large clearance cairns.
Details of whether the opposite took place and field systems were laid out on the eastern side aren't so forthcoming....
