Description

The monument comprises a hut circle of prehistoric date, visible as an upstanding feature.

The monument lies in rough pasture at around 100m OD, in a dry corner of a very boggy area. There is a circular grass-covered foundation measuring about 6.4m in internal diameter. Its wall is spread to a thickness of about 2m by about 0.5m in height, with a few inner facing-stones visible on the NW and SW. There are traces of a baffle wall protecting the entrance, which is on the ESE, and very slight traces of cultivation ridges nearby.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related material may be expected to be found. It is irregular on plan, measuring a maximum of 65m NE-SW by 50m WNW-ESE, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
