A hut circle lies on the edge of a clitter field to the west of Crow Tor, at the foot of a west-facing slope at SX 60428 78829. It is roughly D-shaped and measures 3.3 metres north-south and 4.4 metres east-west. The walls, built of granite moorstone survive up to two courses high in places, and measure 0.5 metres wide and 0.6 metres high (maximum). The interior is terraced into the hillside and a possible entrance is situated in the western side. Vestiges of a possible small annexe survive on this western side (citing Riley, H. M., 23/09/1994, Royal Commission on the Historic Monuments in England Field Investigation).
