Centred SX55868102. Three hut circles and fragments of several contemporary enclosures lie at the south-east foot of Standon Hill above the right bank of Baggator Brook. The huts, tabulated below, have all been terraced into the slope to provide level interiors and only one possesses an entrance. The walls of all three are little more than crude stoney rings even though there is little evidence of disturbance.
The adjacent field system follows an irregular pattern forming small enclosures of less than 0.02 hectares. The north-east edge of the settlement is marked by a long straight boundary bank ascending the lower slopes of Standon Hill and resembling a reave.
Hut 1 (SX55808097) 3.6 metres diameter, walls 0.9 metres, height 0.3 metres
Hut 2 (SX55898101) 4.3 metres diameter, walls 1.2 metres, height 0.4 metres. South-south-west oriented D-shaped hut.
