Full description

NMR, CITING BRETON, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV268195.

Remains of stone circle containing cairn (nmr, citing breton).

NMR, CITING OS, Untitled Source (Report - Survey). SDV268196.

Vis=25/6/1980 (os) no trace of cairn at place indicated by breton. Site now afforested but with no sign of stone clearance in the vicinity and it may be that he was referring to the hut circle 40m to n (nmr, citing os).

SEE OSA SX57SE4, Untitled Source (Report - Survey). SDV268197.

Vis=3/7/1980 (os) at sx56927029, a felled conifer currently obscures much of what appears t be a hut circle. Identification as a cairn may have originated with breton (see osa sx57se4).

NMR, CITING OS, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV268198.

Apparently type 1, with levelled interior 3.5m in diam and rubble walling 1.1m wide, with a few upright slabs on the inner face. Externally the hut is 0.3m high on upper side, 0.6m on lower. No entrance visible. Probably part of a settlement, now much despoiled, of which other elements occur to sw + w (nmr, citing os).
