Full description

Passmore, A., 1996, Survey of an openwork on Haytor Down, 7-8 (Article in Serial). SDV292323.

In and around the open work are over 20 trial pits. Their location suggests several phases of activity with most around the outside and predating the open work. Those inside the open work suggest a later phase of activity.
