SX7080 : Grimspound

taken 14 years ago, 3 km from Lettaford, Devon, Great Britain

This is 1 of 5 images, with title Grimspound in this square
Grimspound is what remains of a Bronze Age settlement consisting of a perimeter wall enclosing an area of about four acres containing around two dozen hut circles. As the site would not have been in a good defensive position, being overlooked from the surrounding hills, the theory is that it was not a fortification but was occupied by a farming community with the walls having been built to keep out marauding animals.
