A solitary hut circle adjacent to abandoned small scale roadstone quarrying immediately n of the b3212 on merripit hill. The level interior measures 3.5m in diam and lies 0.3m below the surrounding ground surface. One large slab has fallen into the interior which is covered by reeds and a number of small boulders. It is enclosed by a wall composed of large slabs, blocks and boulders up to 1.6m wide and 0.8m high. There is no obvious entrance and the hut is partially obscured by heather and bracken. This feature is described by butler (1991, 37) (rchme, citing os).
