Carningli South

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


Shown on some versions of the OS maps, and clearly visible on the new Google satellite imagery, this little round house base is easily accessible and close to the footpath from Carningli Lodge up onto Carningli Common. It's almost certainly a farmstead -- it is associated with small storage structures, at least one larger rectangular hut, and a "lane" leading up to various enclosures / paddocks higher up the slope. It's very similar to the other Bronze Age huts and associated features on the N flank of the mountain. News report here:
