At the spot indicated by the sumbol, on the crest of a ridge, is an oval stone-walled hut measuring c. 11.5m from the W through the mutilated entrance in the E, by c. 10.0m between the centres of a wall spread to c. 3.0m all round. A fence overlies the E arc.
There is no trace of contemporary cultivation in immediate vicinity of hut, but to NW in the area centred NH 811 267 in cleared woodland are several stone clearance heaps and traces of lynchets which may be from contemporary cultivation plots.
Surveyed at 1:10,000. Visited by OS (A A) 17 January 1972.
