Hownam Law - NT 7964 2200
One of the most conspicuous of the Cheviot outliers. The summit ridge and some of the slopes around it are surrounded by a drystone wall enclosing some 20 acres. Originally some ten feet thick, it can be traced along much of its three-quarter mile circuit, although in places it’s been damaged. There are well over 100 hut sites inside it, as well as two ponds and quarries. It’s been suggested that structures like this may have their origins in the Bronze Age, although much of the work appears to be later.
