The enclosure was also recorded on the 1755 Peter May map as an area of arable land containing buildings. It survives as a level improved field bounded by drystone dykes to NE and SE in various states of repair and a stream to the SW and forestry to the NW. (Photo 22) There are the rubble footings of one rectangular building at the break of slope to the west, behind which are rigs on the slope. Running parallel with the remains of the drystone wall to the SE is a deep dry ditch of unknown function. <1>
