The Rheast 'A'

Period: Late Medieval

NGR Easting: 235100

NGR Northing: 487200

Description: Shieling settlement. This well-developed shieling, surrounded on three sides by stream gullies and on the fourth by a bank, was first identified by Megaw and Gelling in 1960. Of particular note is the funnel-shaped arrangement of banks through which stock could be driven into the enclosure. Gelling's small-scale distribution map shows 17 shieling mounds; more recent re-survey suggests that several more survive.
