Hegarty, C., Knight, S. and Sims, R., 2019-2020, The South Devon Coast to Dartmoor Aerial Investigation and Mapping Survey. Area 2, Avon Valley to Plymouth (AI&M, formerly NMP) (Interpretation). SDV362982.

Earthworks of a bank, circa 4m wide, which form a sub-oval enclosure, circa 12m long by 11m wide, with internal hollow, circa 6m long by 5m wide, are visible on visualisations derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017. The earthworks are situated within the remains of a late prehistoric field system (MDV126823) and are therefore interpreted as a possible Bronze Age or Iron Age hut circle.
