HER Number:MDV132212
Name:Cairn/hut south-west of enclosure east of Drizzlecombe, Sheepstor

Summary

Feature recorded as one of a group of three cairns south-west of enclosure by Butler (1994). English Heritage survey (199/2002?) suggests this (and MDV132212) are hut circles, although detail to confirm could not be found. All the features have been dug into and identification is difficult.
