Beacon Hill Settlement - 30.3.2004

Full 8 figure grid ref (from English Heritage scheduling) = SS13224425

The Iron Age hut circles here are not that easy to spot except one which stands out as quite an obvious circle (but it's still not exactly Chysauster!). The circles are in the area 20m or so south of the wall of the 'Old Light' (the old Lighthouse).
