Notes

A group of 12 hut circles lie within an incompletely preserved field system immediately N and NE of Ger Tor. The hut circles are in varying states of preservation and one shows signs of excavation. All the huts have been terraced into the often steep valley side to provide level interiors which are mostly slightly ovoid. Entrances, where apparent, lie in the S quadrant. The associated field system, visible over an area of 10ha is obscured by peat on the N and W and hillwash on the slope NE of Ger Tor.
