Full description

Everett, C., 1978, Archaeological Survey of Some Woodlands Within the Dartmoor National Park, 18, Map 15, BB1 (Report - Survey). SDV360464.

BB1 Hut circle at SX 6451 5929. Diameter 7.2 metres. This is one of the group on the south facing slope to the north of the Butter Brook. It is built into the south facing slope of the hillside and shows as a low mound on its northern side (maximum height 0.6 metres) with the southern perimeter defined by a few stones projecting from a very slight mound - too low to measure accurately. A young sycamore is growing in the centre of the circle, and another in the northern side. Mature conifers are growing both in the southern wall and just outside it.
