Full Description

NG25NW 1.15 2491 6025.

This hut-circle, which is situated in sloping ground in the midst of lazy-bed ridges, measures 4.5m in diameter within rubble-faced banks 1.6m in thickness and 0.6m in height. There is a gap in the S side, which may be an entrance, and its E and W sides have been slightly straightened externally by the digging of ridges, whilst soil has been built up by the same action on the N side.
