Stone hut circle on Walkhampton Common situated 460 metres north-east of Horseyeatt.
Diameter 10.7 metres. Earthwork wall 3 metres wide, 0.95 metres high. 2.3 metre wide ditch up to 0.4 metres deep survives around the upper side of the building. West-south-west sector of the wall has been robbed leaving only a slight 0.1 metre high earthwork. A small pit 0.6 metres square by 0.1 metres deep with sharp sides exists in the west-south-west part of the building and is the result of the turf having been removed relatively recently. Stoney bank leading away is 2.2 metres wide by 0.3 metres high and survives as an earthwork with protruding stones.
Prospecting pits in the vicinity are excluded from the scheduling. Grass, bracken and gorse (2/2/2000).
