Some doubt over this hut circle’s existence/survival. This circle was not identified in either the Monument Protection Programme visit (1994) or during the English Heritage Survey visit (2000). Also not recorded in Butler (1991). Could this reference be confused with one of the nearby circles (53404 or 4620)?
