The second building (USN93 431) measures 15.8m by 4.3m within a stony bank spread to 1m in thickness and 0.3m in height; three of the corners are marked by large boulders. An enclosure containing lazy-beds lies to the W of USN93 431, with a second enclosure overlain by an earth and stone bank, possibly a plantation bank, about 70m to the W of the same building.
About 70m to the NW of USN93 431, there is an oval enclosure (USN93 430, NH 6828 3237) situated on the edge of the improved ground; it measures 12.5m from ENE to WSW by 7.7m transversely within a stony bank 1.2m measuring in thickness and 0.6m in height.
