Notes

An enclosed prehistoric settlement (Centred SX 5955 6976) situated on a north-facing slope, south of the confluence of Newleycombe Lake and Drivage Bottom Stream. The settlement consists of two conjoined enclosures, the larger of which is circular in shape and contains 4 Hut Circles and a clearance cairn. The wall, which is composed of a stony bank approximately 1 m wide, survives almost intact apart from the north section that has been breached by a stream flow. The smaller enclosure is sub rectangular in plan and abuts the south east section of the larger enclosure┬┐s exterior wall.
