18/04/1995 One of two hut circles forming part of a partially enclosed settlement (see also MDV55454). They survive as banks of earth and stone surrounding a circular internal area and lie within a 72m by 35m enclosure defined on three sides by a 1m wide and 0.5m high rubble bank and on the fourth by a spread of dense natural clitter.
Both huts are of the simple plan, single orthostat and earthwork walling type.
(SX 5914 6533) The interior of the southern hut is 4.1m in diameter and is defined by a 1.6m wide wall standing up to 0.9m high.
This hut is site No.102 517f in the National Trust Upper Plym inventory.
