High Hugill Settlement (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) — Fieldnotes

Follow Browfoot Lane from Staveley which bends left around the area called High Knott (on top of which can be seen Williamson's monument). The road splits into two bridle paths; left to The Heights right toward High Hugill (also known as High Borrans). Follow the right path until it almost disappears and turns left onto a more disinct path. Ahead of you there is a grazing field and High Hugill is the field to its left from where you are standing. A quick hop over the wall is all that's required to access the site. Whoever owns the field has erected a new sheep pen in one corner of the field. The site itself seems to be regularly shaped stone foundations in a dip lower than the rest of the area. The field adjacent to the East contains a spring which may have been the ancient water source for the farming community that was. Pictures to follow.
