Hut circle (5) at SX 64437811. A hut of 4 metres internal diameter consisting of a substantial bank of 0.5 metres high by 2.5 metres wide. There are traces of an interior kerb of stone but the majority of the walling has been badly disturbed. A pit 0.6 metres by 0.8 metres by 0.3 metres deep on the southern interior appears recent and could have been caused either by digging or the removal of a tree root. No visible entrance.
