(31/05/1978) B.6 On the slope of East Hill west of the entrance of the prehistoric earthwork (Halstock Camp) at SX 602 942 there are vestiges of a ruined wall or reave running very approximately east-west. This is very likely to be Prehistoric, especially in view of the hut circles further to the west. A detailed survey might well reveal further features.
