More information : Cropmarks of two hut circles at SX 555825. (1)

Two hut circles, centred at SX 55468258, are situated on a slight
north west facing slope to the west of an un-named tributary of
the River Tavy at about 426m OD. Both are of Type 1 (SX 56 SE 19)
with rubble walling, 1.1m wide and 0.3m high and south west facing
entrances. The westernmost hut has an internal diameter of 2.7m;
the other a diameter of 3.7m.

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

Two stony earthworks, probably the disturbed remains of hut circles lie at 430m above OD on a fairly steep NW-facing slope.

SX55468258

A damaged amorphous stony spread 5.5m in overall diameter with a 2.8m by 2.6m and 0.5m deep crude central depression. Small boulders protrude from a ragged bank and there is no obvious gap. The downslope is 0.6m high and the back scarp is 0.4m high.

SX55448258

A level stance approximately 6.2m in diameter cut into the hillslope. Traces of a ragged bank up ot 0.3m high delimit the feature and the internal area is 3.6m across. There is an 0.6m high front scarp and a 0.5m high front scarp. A small pile of stones lie to the rear and is 2.0m across and 0.2m high.

These earthworks have been extensively damaged, possibly by excavation or military activity.

SX55418263

A rectangular grouping of small boulders c 5.4m long may be part of a linear feature mostly buried under deep peat on granite bedrock. (3)

A pair of mounds are likely ot be well-robbed cairns (4)
