Notes

The remains of an unenclosed hut circle of Bronze Age date situated on gently sloping ground to the south west of Brands Hill. It appears to be associated with a clearance bank and a clearance cairn. The hut circle measures 8 metres in diameter externally and is defined by a bank, about 1 metre wide and 0.3 metres high, composed of large stones and earth. There is no apparent entrance but attached to the east side is a 12 metre length of bank, approximately 1.5 metres wide by 0.3 metres high and probably associated with field clearance. A small clearance cairn about 3 metres in diameter and 0.3 metres high lies 5 metres beyond the end of the bank. Scheduled.
