I was up in the Chew valley the other day and was walkng around the Duckstones. I noticed the remains of an old house against a couple of boulders. One boulder formed the back wall, another formed a side wall and both rock faces had been carved smooth with holes for roof beams and even a gutter. The other 2 sides were made of dressed gritstone blocks. There was a narrow cleft between the boulders acting as some kind og back door/escape route for when salesmen come knocking.
Does anyone know the history of this place? Seems far too elaborate to be some kind of shepherd shelter.
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.
