Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division, 1972, SX68SE27, 17/4/1972 (Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division Card). SDV305465.

SX 6851 8045: Remains of a prehistoric enclosed settlement, the "roughly circular pound" and several hut circles situated on a moderate west slope just outside the north east corner of Soussons Plantation. It is not entirely clear whether the enclosure was originally semi-circular and attached to the south side of the North Hamel Down reave or circular and cut by the reave. Today the reave line is followed by a maintained drystone field wall running east to west. Of the six hut circles recorded to the north of the enclosure F was confirmed; J is a possible while K is very doubtful. One, possibly two unrecorded hut circles H and G were located.
