North Uplaw Knowe Romano-British settlement (Netherton with Biddlestone)

This settlement consists of five or six small enclosures, defined by low banks of earth and stone or scooped into the hillslope. Several of the enclosures have hut circles, or circular houses, associated with them. The other enclosures were probably used for keeping livestock. Around the settlement are the slight remains of a field system, with stone clearance heaps, lynchets and field banks. The settlement dates to the Romano-British period and was probably occupied by two or three families.
