Notes: This pile of rubble is actually of significance. Eric Hemery describes it as a ‘longhouse’; “…there are hut circles between Holwell Tor and the valley floor, and on the high plateau beyond the re-entrant, beside a reave-wall running at right angles to the valley, a longhouse. Its remains, much overgrown by heather and furze, measure internally 26½ feet by twelve feet. An internal division creates a large room at the east end, on the north side of which is a small annexe.”
