Bronze Age hut circle at the edge of the farmland at Cadbury Farm in the north-east corner of the field. Sited right up against the cornditch boundary. Internal diameter of 9 metres with 2 metre thick walls and surviving orthostats. The hut circle was probably part of the Bronze Age settlement to the north. The field boundary to the east which respects the hut circle is probably also Prehistoric. Other Prehistoric sites probably existed here but have been destroyed by Medieval fields.
