HER Number:MDV50661
Name:Possible hut on west side of settlement south-west of Legis Tor

Summary

Gerrard (1993) recorded a hut measuring 4m in diameter with wall 1.2m wide (up to 0.3m high) on the east side and as a buried feature on the west. He suggests this hut may have been partly robbed during the construction of the agglomerate enclosure in which it sits, and proposes if this is the case this hut might belong to an earlier settlement. Later survey in 2005 and 2018 didn't identify a hut here.
