Structure A - A corn-drying kiln and barn lie on the north side of the crest of a knoll.
Structure B - On the ground the grass covered low turf footings of a structure measuring 8m x 4m are barely discernible.
Enclosure C - Situated in a large depression this (probable) enclosure is sub-square and slopes gently to the west, it measures roughly 17m x 14m.
Structure D - A rectangular platform on a raised area to the north of enclosure C, is on a east / west axis.
Structure E - Southmost of 2 rectangular structures recessed into the west end of the knoll. Lies on a NE/SW axis and measures 11m x 3m.
Structure F - Northmost of the two structures mentioned above, this lies immediately adjacent to and on the same alignment as structure E.
Structure G - The low turf footings (0.2m high) of a structure measuring 12m x 4m can be identified lying on a north/south axis.
Structure H - A rectangular building, on a north/south axis and measuring 15m x 4m lies to the north of the knoll.
Structure J - Indistinct footings of this structure, to the south of H, appear well on aerial photographs, but on the ground are barely discernable. It measures 6m x 3.5m.
Structure K - Situated on the edge of the terrace this small rectangular building on a north/south axis measures only 5m x 2.5m.
Structure L - A rectangular structure lying on a north/south axis, internal measurement is 6m x 2.5m.
Storage pits M - Two possible storage pits are situated at the bottom of the NE slope of the knoll and are 3m apart.
