Full description

Pattison, P., 1988, Untitled Source (Report - Survey). SDV245618.

The hut circle survives as a platform cut into the slope on the east 0.5 meters and built up downslope to 0.5 meters. The wall remains are almost entirely turf-covered with only a few large-size stones projecting through the surface. Internal diameter is approximately 5.2 meters and scarps forming the platform are between 1.0 and 1.7 meters long. The interior is smooth and level with no entrance visible. A field boundary adjoins on the south-west.

Gerrard, S., 2004, List of Sites Remaining to be Considered for Designation on Dartmoor (Un-published). SDV345444.

This site was considered for designation as a Scheduled Ancient Monument during the Monument Protection Programme. The programme ended before the entire list of sites was successfully scheduled so this is included on a local list of Nationally Important Sites.
