Gerrard's Hut G. Simple plan and rubble bank walling type. Interior measures 4.7 metres in diameter and is defined by a 1.4 metres wide wall standing up to 0.8 metres high. Attached to the outer face of the agglomerate enclosure and the north-west edge of Hut F.


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

Butler shows some banks attached to the wall at this location, but no huts that would match Gerrard's G or F.
