Hot circles near Harford Moor. (2)

A group of hut circles of double walled type, the majority of
which have clearly defined entrances, all facing S.E. One has
been omitted on O.S. 6", position as shown on field sheet [and on record sheet at 20/6459/4834 . ] [SX 64485935] (3)

Eleven hut circles lie on a slight south-west slope of open moorland at about 261m OD. The huts are generally sub-circular,with level interiors, from 3.75m to 7.5m in diameter. The double-faced orthostatic walling averages 1.6m high with entrances, where visible, mainly to the south-east. The huts are mostly in good condition, although one at SX64455932 has been completely stripped out. There are also isolated upright stones suggesting other former huts in this area. The group was resurveyed at 1:2500 on MSD. (4)
