OS 6" map (1911)

Two fragments of what must originally have been a large group of cultivation terraces at Romanno Bridge have been preserved through their inclusion in strips of plantation. The first, which is marked on the OS map, lies just NE of the village, and the other 150 yds away in the same direction. In the latter case the plantation has now been felled. There are three well marked terraces at the lower end of each strip, and traces of others higher up the steep face of the hill. All the terraces are narrow, not exceeding 10ft in width, and bear a general resemblance to the Romanno group.
RCAHMS 1967, visited 1961

These terraces are as described. They are of minor importance.
Visited by OS (WDJ) 24 August 1964 and (SFS) 15 October 1974
