(22/01/1988) There is no surface evidence of a hut circle at the indicated site (1985 APP project) which lies in a small newtake field. This field, now under pasture, is covered by scattered earthfast boulders which have presumably been exposed after the moorland reclamation.
These scattered boulders are visible on RAF APs but there is no trace of a hut circle.
RCHM APs not available for inspection.
