Percy Rigg

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


"The Percy Rigg village was first noticed by the late Mr Proud of Sleddale Farm in 1962, and excavated by R.S. Close in the following years. The site stands 880 feet above sea level at the centre of a large rectangular field about 300 fet long. There are five circular hut bases, two of them 28 feet in diameter with paved floors and walls still standing to a height of three courses of stone. Nine saddle querns and the base of one rotary quern were found."
