Notes

A possible Prehistoric or Roman settlement consisting of twelve hut circles lie in an exposed position just below the Princetown Railway track. Partially explored by the Dartmoor Exploration Committee they had previously been much pulled about by stone cutters. The larger buildings are from 5.2 to 7m; another hut has a 2m annexe and the smallest building lies just 8m from a major reave.
