This rectangular building was visited during course of a forestry survey by Headland Archaeology (NMRS MS 899/25, no.9). Defined by coursed-rubble walls standing up to 1.2m in height, this building measures 12m by 4m and has one internal partition. It lies immediately outside a plantation bank where a stream is led through a culvert under the bank and channelled down beside the W gable of the building.

A total of 28 features or groups of features of archaeological interest were recorded, 19 of which had previously been noted. The majority are post-medieval settlement sites (buildings, farmsteads and settlement sites) recorded first by the OS in 1874.
