Hut circles; Intrigued by the small triangle stone at the back of the hut. Can't give an answer as to why it is built on the slope, but there is a fascinating book about Leskernick, (out on loan at the moment) where there is often a 'back' stone in the hut, an original boulder if I remember rightly... moss Posted by moss

As well the triangle stone, it also has an odd inner ring of stones (better seen in Postie's pics). Pointy stones like that are quite common, as you can fill in the gaps between the points with small stones - probably some good examples on Dartmoor.

As for the slope, this one still gets my vote for "most peculiar":
