Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 442674

Hob Uid: 442674
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6277075090
Summary : Hut circle, now part of SX 67 NW 116
More information : (SX 62777509) Cairn Circle (NR) (1)

"A cairn, 42 feet in diameter, but so robbed as to be reduced to
little more than a marginal ring." (2)

On a slight south east slope at 354m OD within crop marks of a field
system (SX 67 NW 116) is a slightly raised level platform 9.5m
in diameter, encompassed by a circular earthen bank 2.0m wide and
0.6m high. There is a gap of 3.3m in the south east marked by one
large boulder on its south west side. Although it has been assumed
to be a cairn it is integrated with the cropmark of a field bank and
is more likely to be a robbed hut in common with some others within
150m to the north east.

Surveyed at 1:10000 and at 1:2500 for AO Records. (3)

Cairn. (4)

A hut circle, not a cairn circle. This site is now incorporated in SX 67 NW 116 ( but without the transference of authorities 1 to 3). (5)
