MSO11032 - Cairn or hut circle, Elsworthy, Exmoor (Monument)
No summary available.
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (3)
- None recorded
Complex of stony banks up to 0.7m high forming a circular feature with two sub-rectangular enclosed lower levels which correspond in height to the surrounding ground surface. Difficult to distinguish between a ruined hut circle or a robbed cairn.  Centred at SS 8107 4111 are the remains of a cairn. It comprises an irregular spread of surface stone 11.5 m across and 0.3m high. The northern and eastern part is best preserved with a well-defined, curving edge. The remainder has been extensively robbed and disturbed, probably during the construction of the Porlock-Simonsbath Railway (PRN 33046).
