A hut circle is the remaining base of the wall of a round house dwelling, probably from the Bronze Age.
Burnard comments that the hut circle 'has evidently been occupied in comparatively modern times. See gable erected on original stone circle'. Burnard conjectures that the later occupation may have been by tin miners.
The man standing by the hut circle is Burnard himself.
