NZ6909 : Orthostatic Wall, Haw Rigg Slack

near to Castleton, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Orthostatic Wall, Haw Rigg Slack
Orthostatic Wall, Haw Rigg Slack
To the left of Haw Rigg Slack is a small section of wall containing orthostats (very large stones half buried). This is evidence that the wall is very old as this type of walling was used as far back as the bronze age. At the left end of the wall is a square structure NZ6909 : Stone Structure Adjoining Old Wall. Too small to be a sheepfold but too isolated for a shooting butt. Its proximity with the wall would seem to date it to the same period although the crude nature of the walling would suggest it has been rebuilt in modern times. On this side of the beck there is a similar but much smaller section of walling NZ6909 : Stone Structure, North Side of Haw Rigg Slack.
