Description :
Number of hut foundations and enclosure walls, in two main groups, on E side of Bodafon Mountain. <1>

Scheduled area of PRN 1552 extended to cover this site also. <2>

This curvilinear enclosed settlement has only been surveyed by Griffiths (1955, 16), and earlier by the Royal Commission (RCAHMW 1937), but it is included here as it was planned at the same time as Griffiths' work on Bodafon Mountain A (AN19; Figure 6.12). The oval stone enclosure has an entrance to the north. A stone roundhouse, c. 9m in diameter, is situated against the western enclosing wall and has an entrance to the north. A second smaller roundhouse, c. 4m in diameter, may have functioned as an ancillary structure it is linked to the main roundhouse via a wall which leads from the two entranceways, and stands in the centre of the enclosure with an entrance to the north-east.
