Twp possible shielings (Tarset with Greystead)

Two medieval shielings were noted here in the 1970s, one with a small yard and outbuildings. However, by 1979 this area of land had been broken up by drains and was very overgrown making it difficult to find any trace of these buildings. Yet, a visit in the 1908s did find the shieling as well as a corn drying kiln.
