Coronation Wood hut circles (Earle)

This is a group of hut circles standing on a north-facing hill slope near the summit of Snear Hill. At least five stone round houses can be seen. North of this lie a field system made up of stone and earth banks, clearance cairns and slight traces of cord rig. Two possible Bronze Age burial cairns stand in a group of clearance cairns even further to the north. These remains are Scheduled Monuments protected by law.
