Black Burn possible unenclosed settlement (Rothley with Hollinghill)

Near the bank of the Black Burn are the possible remains of two prehistoric hut circles. When first discovered in the 1940s, they were both oval in shape, measuring between 4.5m and 5.5m long. Since that time the area has been planted with trees and only one of the hut circles seems to have survived. It is now no more than a few intermittently placed stones.
