Full description

Oates, M., 2002, Ruined building on West Mill Tor (Worksheet). SDV232364.

Ruin of a granite hut 5.5 metres by 4 metres on the south-west side of 'West Mill Tor'. The 0.6 metre thick walls stand up to 1.75 metres high. The east end is built into the hillside and there appears to be an entrance at the southeast corner. The hut is within the army firing range and maybe the remains of an early shelter.
