Lowland Point (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) — Miscellaneous
The area to the west of Lowland Point is one of those marvellous palimpsest landscapes you get in some places.
Here, there are traces of Mesolithic flint working, Bronze Age hut circles and a possible round barrow known as The Barn (at SW 80251952), as well as a 2nd century AD Romano-British field system and salt works. Pottery of the Bronze Age (Trevisker Ware) and Romano-British periods has been found here.
A medieval field system known locally as The Stitch covers the northeastern part of the area.

"The fleeting hour of life of those who love the hills is quickly spent, but the hills are eternal. Always there will be the lonely ridge, the dancing beck, the silent forest; always there will be the exhilaration of the summits. These are for the seeking, and those who seek and find while there is still time will be blessed both in mind and body." Alfred Wainwright
