Settlement, Gillsmere 28366_033

Iron Age Roman settlement at Gillsmere, Cumbria. The low winter sunlight in this aerial photograph reveals subtle details of this late Iron Age or Roman settlement. The two round houses are separated from the surrounding land by an embanked boundary with an entrance on the southern side, opening towards a stream. The settlement is sheltered by rising ground to the south and looks out across views north of the Howgill Fells. The remains of medieval or post medieval ploughing - showing here as parallel ridges and furrows - shows that this area was in agricultural use for a long time
