A small circular mound is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs, located on the north facing slope of Shilstone Hill at circa SS 76264656. It appears to be approximately 5 metres in diameter. No evidence of internal spaces or features can be seen to support the interpretation as a hut circle. An interpretation as a small clearance cairn, possibly related to medieval enclosure activity, is suggested by this authority. It remains visible on aerial photographs of 1995. (3-4)
