Westgate Dance Hall

This building up Peat Hill in Westgate used to be a Dance Hall, but now private residences.  The lane to the left of the buildings leads to Slitt Wood, a popular place for ramblers.  A few yards down from the hall, and behind the present local abattoir, was where Westgate Castle used to be situated.  An archaeology team spent a few weeks in 2011 excavating the site but it has now been covered over again. Details of the excavation can be found at :
