Mount Pleasant unenclosed settlement (Cartington)
On the south-east facing slopes of Mount Pleasant are the remains of a prehistoric unenclosed settlement and field system. The settlement includes at least four hut circles varying between 5.5m and 14.5m in diameter. The field system is made up of field walls, lynchets and clearance cairns. Amongst the clearance cairns are three larger cairns which may have been used for burials. The field system is also crossed by a sunken way which may be contemporary with the settlement.
