This is in fact 'B' shaped - or rather, one pendant enclosure, with possible hut circle within, with another enclosure secondary to both the pendant enclosure and the reave, which is Hurston Main Reave. Other details: sketch.

An isolated Settlement 8 consisting of a pair of D-shaped enclosures with a few set stones were added to the west side of the Chagford Common Reave. The spread banks are less than 0.3 metres above the turf but were at one time clearly more substantial as the ancient track beside the reave takes a turn around them
