Langstone Moor settlement
Langstone Moor settlement submitted by TheCaptain : Remains of a large ancient settlement, on the south facing slopes of Langstone moor above the Walkham valley. The settlement consists of at least seven enclosures and more than 50 huts. (Vote or comment on this photo)
Here are the remains of a large ancient settlement, on the south facing slopes of Langstone moor above the Walkham valley. The settlement consists of at least seven enclosures and more than 50 huts, which are largely in a fairly good state of repair. This settlement had incomplete excavations here by the Dartmoor Exploration Committee in 1894, which were curtailed early due to bad weather.

The site is dominated by the mass of Great Mis Tor which is just to the south, the other side of the river valley. Just uphill from the site, only 200 metres away, but not visible from it, is the Langstone Moor stone circle.

Update November 2019: This settlement is featured on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks (PDW) website - see their entry for the Langstone Moor Settlement. The site is also recorded as Pastscape Monument No. 439615, and as MDV4219 (Langstone Moor hut circle settlement, Peter Tavy) on the Devon and Dartmoor HER.

This complex hut settlement, which covers 4.7 hectares, is scheduled as both Historic England List Entry No. 1007554 (Enclosures and stone hut circles forming part of a stone hut circle settlement on Langstone Moor) and as Historic England List ID 1007556 (Seven stone hut circles, a length of field boundary and a clearance cairn forming part of the settlement on Langstone Moor).
