MMO1857 - Possible Bronze Age hut circle on Countisbury Common (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
A circular banked feature is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs of Countisbury Common and may be the remains of a prehistoric hut circle. Centred at SS 7487 5008, close to the summit of Butter Hill, the feature measures approximately 4.5 metres across, with the interior measuring 3 metres across. It is similar to other Bronze Age hut circles recorded in SS 64 NW (see MDE8961 for an example), but approximately half the size. A second possible hut circle is visible approximately 40 metres to the south-east (see MMO1858). Further study will be required to assess these features. [1,2]
