Monument Number 443787

Hob Uid: 443787
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Chagford
Grid Ref : SX6733082530
Summary : The site of an enclosed stone hut circle settlement located next to the stone alignment (SX 68 SE 10) on Chagford Common. The enclosure contains at least six stone hut circles with a seventh attached to the outer face of the enclosure wall. This enclosure measures 210 metres long by 118 metres wide and is denoted by orthostatic walling. This wall passes across the stone alignment which as a result partially lies within the enclosure. The stone hut circles associated with the enclosure survive as banks each surrounding a circular internal area. Scheduled.

In creating this record, elements from two other records have been included in this record. The actual enclosure was first recorded separately on record SX 68 SE 77 whilst the hut circles on the western side of the enclosure were recorded on record SX 68 SE 87 and those on the eastern side of the enclosure were recorded at SX 68 SE 9 (this record). All three elements have now been combined to create one record for an enclosed hut circle settlement. As a result record SX 68 SE 87 has been deleted. Record SX 68 SE 77 still remains and mainly described the reave system in the area.
