HER Number:MDV55440
Name:Yard at Hentor Farm

Summary

Vis=18/5/1995 (gerrard) this sub-rectangular yard measures 33m by 28m and is situated south of hentor farmhouse. It is defined on the w side by a wall leading from the e end of the farmhouse and on the s and e sides by a crudely constructed 1m wide and 0.4m high narrow stone wall. The latter is composed of mostly irregular stones and hummocks but includes a few faced stones and orthostats. The w end of the southern wall abuts the wall leading from the farmhouse and the n end of the e wall approaches building (subsheet 5). The yard is bisected by a stone causeway, which seems to be a path to hentor house. It cuts through the s wall of this yard, 11m from the e end; the 1.80m wide gap is flanked by an orthostat on the e side and is presumably a gateway (mpp).
