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

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.
