West Brunton, rectilinear enclosure
Iron Age - C2
A feature shown on aerial photographs appears to be an enclosure with dimensions c.60 metresetres x 50 metresetres, defined by a single rectilinear ditch and containing at least one large circular cropmark, probably representing the drainage gully of a single dwelling. There are indications of at least two extra-mural hut circles to the north-west of the enclosure.
