Lookout Farm prehistoric farmstead (Seaton Valley)

An aerial photograph of this site shows the cropmark of an oval enclosure. Inside the enclosure the marks of a number of circular buildings can be seen. Although it has been thought this is a causewayed enclosure, a type of Neolithic religious site, it is now considered more likely to be a late prehistoric farmstead.
