In an area known as Stones Bank on Charters Moss 1 mile to the west of Cheetham Close Stone Circle complex, NW of the village of Dimple, have been found a number of circular and semi-circular features. The site is unrecorded and has not been subjected to survey or excavation. The site I am rellablebly informed is taken on face to be a number of hut circles and related enclosures.
Charters Moss is now a plantation and in the past peat digging on the Moss has revealed many Bronze Age finds, the best examples being a perforated stone hammer and a bronze palstave.
Other finds in the area have been a looped socketed spearhead with part of its original wooden shaft, a more developed palstave with improved hafting, and a loop-headed srearhead of bronze. All the items found display a high standard of workmanship in their manufacture suggesting a well-developed and prosperous community living in the area.
The site is SE of the nearby car park on the edge of the plantation on the banks of Stones Bank Brook.
