Prehistoric Features on Gouthwaite Farm

Visible archaeological features at Gouthwaite include a number of hut circles and enclosures that indicate a settlement that is probably of Iron Age origin, or even earlier. There is also a very recognisable Bronze Age carved rock.


These features are high on the ridge on the west side of Gouthwaite Reservoir.
