/ Old hermitage near Duckstones, Chew valley?
Does anyone know the history of this place? Seems far too elaborate to be some kind of shepherd shelter.
Bramley's Cot. Don't know its history though.
I've always assumed (for no particular reason) that it's an old shooting hut.
There are quite a few around the area. Rimmon cottage on northern edge of Black Hill, another near summit of West Nab. Shame they have crumbled, would have made great bothies.
By Rimon cottage do you meen the ruined bothy thats on the northern edge of the clough flowing east from black hill down to digly res? I think its marked wrigglys cabin or something on the 1:25000 OS. And theres the cottage in the gully slightly east of standing stones crag.
