Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 442677

Hob Uid: 442677
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6265075180
Summary : Hut circle, now recorded as part of the hut circle settlement in record SX 67 NW 116.
More information : (SX 62657518) Cairn Circle (NR) (1)

A ruined cairn, 20 feet diameter, containing one side stone of a
cist. The stone is 4 feet 8 inches long. (2)

Remains of the cairn comprise a 10.5m diameter retaining circle
of turf covered stones. (3)

Another circle at SX 6275 7520. (4)

On a slight south east slope at 358m OD and within a field system
represented by crop marks (SX 67 NW 116) are two earth and stone
circular banks. One at SX 62657519 has a level interior measuring
7.7m in diameter with a complete perimeter bank between 0.6m and
2.0m wide and up to 0.3m high. There is no sign of a cist or any
internal stone.

The second, at SX 62757519, has a slightly sloping interior
10.0m in diameter, a bank 1.5m wide and 0.3m high, with a 3.3m gap
in the south east. Both circles are covered with long coarse grass,
but the banks seem to have a stone content although the interiors
are clear of stone.

The circles and the field system show up well as crop marks on the
low level NMR air phtographs, though the field system is not
traceable on the ground. This, together with the situation, a very
low, broad spur, suggests that the circles represent huts and not
robbed cairns. (For plan see SX 67 NW 59)

Surveyed at 1:10000 and at 1:2500 on MSD. (5)

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 5). (6)
