“As Hurricane Sandy prepares to make landfall within the next few hours our collective thoughts and prayers go out to those who find themselves in the path of this furious storm.

The main area of archaeological interest is to the south-east of the hamlet at grid reference SX556746. Although it has been diminished over time.
Cist (Kist) to the south of the rows
To the south of the avenues is a large kistvaen which contained a flint scraper, a number of flint flakes and a whetstone for polishing metal items. The ‘lid’ of the cist was broken in two by a farmer sometime in the past who made a gatepost out of it. Numerous tors are visible from the site, including King’s Tor and Staple Tor.
