Grimspound is one of the best known prehistoric remains on Dartmoor.
It was probably built during the Bronze Age (2500 ? 800 BC) and is a roughly oval settlement site of about 4 acres. It was enclosed by a stone perimeter wall with a south facing entrance and contains the remains of 24 hut circles.
The settlement is at an altitude of 1,500 feet and is protected by rising ground on three sides.
Many of the features at Grimspound have been restored.
