HER Number:MDV47607
Name:HUT CIRCLE in the Parish of Peter Tavy

Summary

Vis=2/12/1987 (rchme) hut 11. Sx53967701. The largest and best preserved hut circle in this group. It is 6.3m internal diam and is levelled into the slope to a depth of 0.6m. The front scarp is 0.4m high and the wall of boulder and stone construction with some inner and outer facing slabs is 2.1m wide and up to 0.6m high. Notably part of the wall on the downhill side is coursed with moorland slabs and the entrance is in the n side. Two enclosure walls are linked to the s side. This could, as raleigh-radford has suggested, be a round hut of later origin (nmr, citing fletcher).
