Joseph Wade’s Hut, Bilsdale West Moor

Joseph Wade’s Hut, the feature looked interesting on the map, but all I could find was just a cairn on a bronze age round barrow. Round barrows generally occupy prominent positions in the landscape and are thought to have had a funerary function although they may have also marked the boundaries of prehistoric peoples.

The view is overlooking Ryedale and in the far distance is Black Hambleton.
