J.Barnatt suggested in his 1990 book that these two sites were possibly robbed/ring cairns. Although it is now thought the circular rubble rings are probably hut circles. The rest of the features suggest the area was used in the Bronze Age for settlement and agriculture.
Clearance cairns and linear field walls are also quite visible, amongst the tufty grass. Especially on the Sheepwash Bank site.

The sites lay next to each other on two spurs of land below Stanage Edge.
