Full Description

Poss hut circle/enclosure: NC 708 584: Part of a possible hut circle set on a small level area near a stream. The structure seems to be set into the slope on the west side, and here is destroyed by material tumbled from above. The east arc is banked up with a large gap or break, after which, towards the north, stones are visible and form a rough arc which is overgrown with bracken. The 'interior area' has material in it which has fallen from above and is not particularly level. Its diameter is c.13.4m.
