A degraded house was noted WCAS during a 2011 DBA and walkover survey in advance of a woodland creation scheme. It was built into a E-facing slope under grass, heather and rush. The drystone structure measures 12m N-S by 5m over walls 0.6m wide and standing up to 1.4m high on the W side. The entrance in the E wall is 0.8m wide and is located 5.5m from the N end. Immediately to the W of the structure is a depression in the ground now infilled with vegetation and may have been a quarry for building stone for nearby sites. <1>
