Full description

Probert, S. A. J., 1989, RCHME Field Investigation (Report - Survey). SDV234023.

Hut circle C (at SX 63047195). A hut of 7.0 meters internal diameter, robbed in the south-west quadrant. The walling is about 2.0 meters wide, consisting of massive inner and outer facing slabs between 0.3 meters and 1.3 meters high. No entrance can be seen. Small stones protrude from the turf within the hut on the east and south, and outside, to the west, a stony patch may indicate robbed or excavated material.

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.
