Enclosure (angular).

The stone walls are 0.6m thick and are almost completely covered in moss; the long sides trend 1620. The NE corner of the structure is chamfered by 1m, and the deep bracken and heather-covered interior of the enclosure is raised above the level of the surrounding terrain to the same 0.5m height of the retaining walls. <1>
