Monument Number 438656

Hob Uid: 438656
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Sheepstor
Grid Ref : SX5765066750
Summary : A hut circle - now recorded with the adjacent settlement (438650).
More information : (SX 57656675) Tumulus (NR) (Site of) (NAT). (1)

Situated on a slight south slope is a circular feature, 8.0m in
overall diameter, 0.1m high on the north side and 0.4m high on
the south. The top is level and comprises a platform 4.8m across
surrounded by a rim 1.5m wide and 0.1m high. The whole appears to
be constructed of very small stones, now grass and heather
covered.

It is difficult to determine its precise nature since some
robbing may have taken place for the nearby newtake wall.

It may be a hut but the lack of an entrance suggests the
stronger probability is that it is a cairn, perhaps robbed, but
with the distinct possibility it is a ring cairn.

Surveyed at 1:10 000 on PFD. (2)
