Wag Of Forse
About Wag Of Forse
Wag of Forse is an Iron Age site with multiple periods of occupation including a dun and wags. the site was partly excavated by Curle on separate occasions. According to the notes in the Canmore Database of RCAHMS the sequence of occupation may have been of huts of three periods overlaid by a dun. The site was surrounded by a turf wall mounted on stone.
Surrounding the site is field system with the remains of the walls in place - not in straight lines but in segments. The outline is clear at the site and particularly in photos from the air.
Great views of the surrounding countryside to the sea and in other directions are to be had from this site. The ground is a bit rough at the start from cattle that over winter. The area is on a working farm and dogs need to be kept on a lead if taken at all.
The site is on the ground of Nottingham Mains Farm and to the rear of Forse Care Home - once the big house on the estate.
