MSO12260 - Possible prehistoric hut circle or cairn at Lanacombe (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
Circular feature approx. 10 paces diameter, of two concentric stony banks. Internal rubble bank with hollowed centre; shallow ditch around this; outer rubbly bank slighter (ditch outcast?). Not dissimilar to features above Long Chains Combe (MSO6848) which have been claimed as hut circles, though bear little resemblance to those on dryer land.  This may possibly be a cairn reported by Richard McDonnell and RCHME, see MSO7107.
