Notes: "Circular ring bank on Little Gnat's Head, between the River Plym and Deadman's Bottom. Overgrown with grass and peat, there is a 0.5 metre gap on the south-west side. The location is a likely one for a cairn, but the feature more closely resembles a hut circle, especially with a possible entrance gap to the south-west."
