High Hugill Settlement

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


Attempted to visit 25/02/2011ce.

In his book Prehistoric Rock Art in Cumbria, Stan Beckensall describes the site as "a very interesting one, seldom visited as far as I know, although it lies just off a public right of way."

Unfortunately, it would appear that the site will probably remain seldom visited, as access to the adjacent field (from which a gate led to the site) is blocked by a (brand-new?) barbed-wire fence and padlocked field-gate. As there was no stock in either field, I might have been tempted to continue had the field-gate not been padlocked, but as it was I took the hint and just went for a walk instead.

The site can be viewed from another adjacent field to the north (technically off the right of way), but unfortunately it was too misty for decent photography.
