Full description

Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division, 1953, SX78SW7 (Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division Card). SDV305287.

Hut circle A; One of three huts. All appear to be of single wall type and have no associated enclosure or field system. They are cut into the northern slopes of a hill, and it is only in this hut that an entrance is visible. It consists of a sill and two orthostats only, but is remarkable for the width of the sill and for the height of the orthostats (up to 1.7 metres). Other details: Sketch and copy of photograph included.
