Summary : A small circular stone quarry or extractive pit of probable post medieval date is visible on aerial photographs on the west of Furzehill Common, Lynton and Lynmouth. It is depicted but not annotated on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1890, suggesting it was abandoned prior to publication.
More information : (SS 73254458) Hut Circle (NR). (1)
This feature is shown but not named on OS 6" 1962. It is not listed by Grinsell, but may be a cairn as are other alleged hut circles in this vicinity (SS 74 SW 23). (2)

SS7325 4458. An irregular circular earthwork, possibly a small quarry, seen by McDonnell (3) on air photos (4)

A small circular stone quarry or extractive pit of probable post medieval date is visible on aerial photographs on the west of Furzehill Common, Lynton and Lynmouth. It is depicted but not annotated on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1890, suggesting it was abandoned prior to publication. The Devon HER records it as a third ring cairn, but when viewed in stereo it is clearly a cut feature (7).
