The site of an enclosed stone hut circle settlement located next to the stone alignment (SX 68 SE 10) on Chagford Common. The enclosure contains at least six stone hut circles with a seventh attached to the outer face of the enclosure wall. This enclosure measures 210 metres long by 118 metres wide and is denoted by orthostatic walling. This wall passes across the stone alignment which as a result partially lies within the enclosure. The stone hut circles associated with the enclosure survive as banks each surrounding a circular internal area.
