Full description

Fletcher, M. J., 1988, Royal Commission for the Historical Monuments of England (Report - Survey). SDV214888.

A probable hut circle approximately 6.0 meters across is levelled into the north-west facing slope at SX62967366. A stony scarp, part of a field boundary, delimits the uphill side and a vague 0.3 meter high scarp marks the lower side. There is no trace of walling or the position of an entrance.


Gerrard, S., 2004, List of Sites Remaining to be Considered for Designation on Dartmoor (Un-published). SDV345444.

This site was considered for designation as a Scheduled Ancient Monument during the Monument Protection Programme. The programme ended before the entire list of sites was successfully scheduled so this is included on a local list of Nationally Important Sites.
