Round Pound, Devon


  • Located in Chagford, Devon, South West England, England
  • Close to Batworthy Corner, and below Kestor Rock, are the remains of Round Pound
  • Round Pound is a large hut circle on the edge of an extensive prehistoric settlement. The large hut circle of Round Pound is set within a much larger circular 'pound' wall
  • We've been researching Dartmoor National Park for years and, when we first started exploring the area, we drove past Round Pound on dozens of occasions without noticing its walls. When they're pointed out, it becomes clear what an impressive hut circle site it is. Zoom in on the Google map to see its exact location. We'd recommend using the 'Satellite' view as you get a sense of the size of the dwelling. Alternatively, refer to the Ordnance Survey OL28 'Dartmoor' map for detail
