Full Description

NC85SE 17 8991 5104.

At NC 8991 5104, on a W-facing hillslope, is a simple hut circle measuring 7.5m N-S by 6.5m within a low peat and heather-covered wall, spread to 1.8m, with the W arc very obscure. The entrance is in the south. A few small clearance heaps in the vicinity are the only evidence of contemporary cultivation.
Surveyed at 1/10,000.
Visited by OS (J B) 21 June 1977.

Field survey identified the poorly preserved remains of a hut circle within an area of dense heather. All that survives of the structure is a circular depression measuring 8m in diameter. No obvious structure was visible although one boulder is present at the SW side of the depression. There was no visible evidence of the clearance heaps recorded previously by the NMRS/SMR. The area was covered in dense heather and visibility was limited. <1>
