Full Description

Part of a large circular banked enclosure seen on APs. [1] Situated on a N facing spur, just below the crest of the hill. S, SW and SE sides visible as an arc of bracken growth in an otherwise grassy area. Slight terrace in hillside with arc of bracken on riser of terrace. Not traceable downslope. [2] No earthworks recorded. There is a naturally platformed area on the site which may have contributed to the vegetational changes. [3] Not located by RCHME Exmoor Survey in 1997. [4] RCHME confused this site with PRN 34246 and may not have looked. [5]
