Full description

Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division, 1980, SX57SE127, SX57SE127 (Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division Card). SDV276919.

Site visited on 28th June 1980. Centred at SX56557026 on a moderately steep south-east slope, are the remains of fourteen hut circles within a conifer plantation and in very poor condition. They are probably of Type 1 and have rubble walling which averages 1.0 metres wide and 0.3 metres high, with levelled interiors from 2.5 metres to 3.9 metres in diameter. No entrances can now be recognised although they were presumably in the south-east sides.
