Broomhouse Common settlement (Featherstone)

A Roman period small farm lies on side of the South Tyne valley. It is almost square in plan and is surrounded by a bank and ditch. Inside the settlement are some yards and at least three round houses. Outside the settlement, a small mound may be the remains of a heap of stone cleared from a field or cultivated land. However, no other evidence of a field system were found.
