Raddick Hill North is a Bronze Age enclosed settlement sitting on the southern edge of a tin streamwork scarp. The settlement survives as a sub-circular enclosure with an entrance on its west side.

Within the enclosure there are 11 stone built round houses, traces of lynchets and plots defined by low rubble walls and a later tinners building. Attached to the outer face of the enclosure on the south east side is a small field-plot. All of the round houses were examined by the Dartmoor Exploration Committee in 1896. This work recovered charcoal, pot boilers, rubbing stones, flint scrapers and pottery. The site forms part of an extensive Scheduled Ancient Monument.

[Butler, J., Dartmoor Atlas of Antiquities Vol. 3, 1994, 54-55]

Update November 2019: This settlement is featured on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks (PDW) website - see their entries for the Raddick Hill Enclosed Settlement and the Sharpitor area Stone Rows and Cists.

The settlement is also recorded as Pastscape Monument No. 440130, as MDV3748 (Settlement south-east of Black Tor) on the Devon and Dartmoor HER, and scheduled as part of Historic England List Entry No. 1020129 (Tinworks and other archaeological remains in the Meavy valley at Stanlake, Black Tor, Hart Tor and Cramber Tor).
