This Early Bronze Age settlement lays a couple of hundred metres south of the Nine Stone Close. There's no upstanding remains between the two low rock outcrops that occupy the site apart from a small circular mound of stones. These may be stones of field clearance although the circular nature of it looks a bit weird if that's the case.
We found a few flint flakes in the mole hills in the area.
G. A Makepeace described and excavated here in the 1960's, whether this was published I don't know but getting hold of the report may help in understanding the site.
