Details The remains of two circular stone-walled huts are set into the southeast slopes of Brankham Hill amongst cultivation associated with later depopulated buildings. They measure about 11.0m in diameter between wall centres, although there are no trace of entrances. No comtemporary cultivation is evident. Situated on a steepening slope above the huts, is a prominent setting of seven earthfast stones on edge, forming two-thirds of a circle 1.9m in diameter. The largest stone in the SW arc (0.6m high), and three others, are displaced outwards. The enclosed area is turf-covered with a stony content 0.1m high. The setting appears to occupy a levelled area in the hillside. But for its size, this feature would probably be classified as a burial cairn.
