HER Number:MDV3307
Name:ENCLOSURE in the Parish of Peter Tavy

Summary

Vis=18/9/1951(os) enclosure c.60m long, 1m wide, 0.5m high. The remains of the enclosure consist of a single stretch of rough walling made with blocks of granite, and runs down the very steep slope of the cleave until its lower or southern end is lost in a clitter of boulders. It is possible that at one time more of the enclosure and other hut circles were visible, but extensive turf cutting in the area has removed all signs of them if they did exist in recent times (os).
