SD2392 : Settlement at The Hawk

taken 4 years ago, near to Hoses, Cumbria, Great Britain

Settlement at The Hawk
Settlement at The Hawk
Although sited on a promontory, the settlement appears to occupy a hollow amongst the rocky outcrops. This is the extreme western end of the few visible remains. Just beyond Ali is what appears to be an entrance in a wall which runs across a gap in the outcrops. It could be a Romano-British site. I wonder what they did for water? It's a fair way down to the becks on either side. The trees of course are a much later addition to the scene although the view to Caw cannot have changed much in the intervening centuries.
