Full description

National Monument Record, 2018, Pastscape (Website). SDV360651.

SX 7434278982. A small three-sided structure 20 metres east of Hound Tor. The structure is square and measures 2.0 metres internally with coursed boulder walls 0.8 metres wide and 1.2 metres high. The interior is levelled into the moderate slope and open to the west. Its function is unclear, though the relatively well preserved state would indicate a post-medieval origin. It does not appear to overlie any earlier feature (citing Probert, S. A. J., Riley, H. M., 6/02/1995, Royal Commission on the Historic Monuments in England Field Investigation).
