Monument Number 442246

Hob Uid: 442246
Location :
Devon
South Hams
Cornwood
Grid Ref : SX6218063440
Summary : A cluster of five stone hut circles lying on a south facing slope overlooking the valley of the River Yealm.
More information : (SX 62176343) about 133 yards south southeast from
the cist (SX 66 SW 29) is a small cairn, and a little further on
in the same direction there is a retaining circle of 14 feet
internal diameter; it does not seem to have been associated with
a cist. (1)

At SX 62186342 and SX 62196343 are the remains of two hut
circles both in poor condition on a south facing slope at 345.0m OD.
The former is of Type 1 and has a 4.0m internal diameter with
walling 1.7m wide and 0.6m high. It has a levelled interior,
but because of its poor condition the entrance cannot be
identified. The other hut is of Type 2. It has a 3.5m internal
diameter with walling 1.9m thick and 0.4m high. There is a
southern entrance. No other remains are evident in the area
and it would appear that the poor conditions of the huts led to
their misidentification as a cairn/cairn circle.

Surveyed 1:10 000 on MSD. (2)
