Full description

Hankin, C. F., 1977, Enclosed hut circle settlement north of Drylake (Worksheet). SDV165677.

Hut circle measuring 7.0 meters in diameter in fair condition.


Butler, J., 1993, Dartmoor Atlas of Antiquities: Volume Four - The South-East, 53-54 (Monograph). SDV337765.

This hut circle (2) measures 6.5 meters in diameter and has been built across the perimeter of the enclosure and has a south-facing entrance into the enclosure. The uphill wall of this circle has been partly demolished and replaced by a construction across the centre of the hut, which is likely to represent a tinner’s temporary dwelling, due to the close proximity of the pit and ditch alongside this enclosure. Other details: Map 54, 13.
