NS4177 : Remains of an enclosure

taken 7 years ago, near to Bellsmyre, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Remains of an enclosure
Remains of an enclosure
The enclosure is roughly rectangular, and measures roughly 30 by 20 metres. It is located just to the north of the northern corner of Square Wood, and is easily picked out on satellite imagery.

In this view, its eastern side can be seen as a dark green line, from about halfway up the right-hand edge of the picture. It can be followed from there to the northern side of the enclosure, in the left-hand side of the photo. The enclosure's near side is harder to make out.

Given the enclosure's apparent age, it may have been associated with the farmstead of Breadfield, now long gone, which was depicted on Roy's Military Survey of Scotland as being nearby (it was somewhere near, but not necessarily at, the area shown in NS4277 : Remains of a structure).

At the north-eastern corner of the enclosure, an old field dyke begins; it is the one shown on the left in NS4177 : Old field boundaries. In fact, there is a gap of 2 or 3 metres between the side of the enclosure and the beginning of that field dyke; perhaps a gate once stood in the gap.
