Summary : Bronze Age hut circle, 9.1m in diameter, on the left bank of Lowton Brook in Fernworthy Forest. Scheduled together with other near by sites as part of a hut circle settlement.
More information : (SX 66248343) Hut Circle (NR). (1)

Hut circle 9.1m diameter, cut into an east slope; single walling
up to 1.2m, high, entrance on south east. A modern east to west
enclosure wall abuts the south side of the hut. (2)

SX 66238343. A massively constructed hut circle lie on a slight shelf on the steep NE facing slope above the left bank of the Lowton Brook within Fernworthy Forest. The area occupied by the hut has not been overplanted but the hut has been disturbed probably during the construction of the adjacent field wall, described by authority 2. The levelled interior measures 8.8m in diameter with orthostatic walls 1.2m wide and up to 1.2m high. There is no obvious entrance though a gap in the SE wall may mark its former site.
A recumbent stone within the hut has had five rectangular slots cut in its upper surface and was intended for use as a slotted gate-post. However, it remains in its original position embedded in the ground. (3)
