HER Number:MDV12974
Name:Feature previously described as a hut circle south-east of Saddle Bridge

Summary

Identified by the Ordnance Survey in 1977 as a hut circle associated with the nearby settlement, this appears to be erroneous. This feature appears to be the product of a slight natural scarp at the end of a Bronze Age field boundary and disturbance caused by the adjacent streamworkings.
