Hut circles at Holwell Tor. The site consists of two attached rectangular enclosures, which judging by their alignment may represent remodelling of earlier reaves, although no other association with the reaves survives. This hut circle is of double wall construction and up to 1 metre high. It is attached to a north to south wall and has an internal diameter of 7 metres levelled into the slope. Heavily turf covered though many stones visible including some orthostats.
