After a bit of to-ing & fro-ing through bog and shallow swamp, some very obvious prehistoric walling was found, in an area that has no previous record of prehistoric remains. The walling was low, but similar to the structure at Brackenhall Circle above Shipley Glen - i.e., a double-walled arc of low stones, here running for 25 yards in an arc into the deep heather, where we lost sight of it. What may be a singular cairn (summat man-made anyay!) lies at the side of the old walling as it entered the deep heather.
About 100 yards away we found another more extensive line of ancient walling running through the shallow heather and into deeper vegetation, where we could thankfully trace it for 100 yards or so before it disappeared into the heaths. None of these remains are in the archaeological record. On one of the rocks close to the 'cairn' was an obvious cup-marked stone with another fainter one by its side. What looks like a carved half-ring encircled the left-hand side of the main cup-mark. This aint in the record-books either.
Sorry about the poor state of the photos here, but the downpouring was heavy at times and visibility in the fog wasn't good. We might get up here agin in the coming month or 3 and if we do, we'll try getting some better images. Huge thanks to Tricia, Bob, PaulH & Mikki for gerrin out & about and suceeding once again.
