Full description

Gerrard, S., 1990-2002, Monument Protection Programme. Archaeological Item Dataset., 4/2/1992 (Report - Survey). SDV277946.

Hut circle at SX54367888. Internal diameter 2.0 metres. Rubble bank wall 1.4 metres wide, 0.4 metres high. Royal Commission (1988) consider it doubtful, but the possibility of it being a hut attached to the earliest enclosure on the site should not be discounted.
