Full description

Newman, P., 2003, The Langstone Moor Stone Circle, Peter Tavy, Devon and its Prehistoric Environs, 7-9, 16, figs 2, 9 (Report - Survey). SDV255420.

Feature No. 41 shown on the English Heritage survey of 2003 as a semi-circle of stones at this location may be a hut circle. The feature appears to be more like a bulge in the enclosure wall than a hut. It is also shown to the northwest at SX55617796 where it appears to be a hook-shaped linear feature.
