(22/01/1988) There is no evidence of a hut circle at the indicated site which lies in enclosed and partially reclaimed moorland pasture. The area is now under rough grassland with patches of gorse and scattered earthfast boulders.
Irregular patterns apparently caused by both vegetation growth and large boulders are evident on RAF APs (1985 transcription) but no features of archaeological significance are traceable.
RCHM APs not available for inspection.
