Eastern Tor Prehistoric settlement close to Ditsworthy Warren House, which is in poor condition and has been disturbed by later rebuilding. There seem to have been five separate enclosures (A-E) but only one (A) to the north remains moderately complete. Remnants of at least five hut circles are scattered among the rocks within the southern enclosures.
