Full Description

On the NW bank of the small stream and uphill from a cluster of grass-covered ruins is a sub-circular enclosure defined by a low turf and rubble dyke, colonised by bracken. Immediately downstream of this there is also a small substantial ruin. <1>

This feature was recorded during a walkover survey at NG 453 482, but it is summised that the description refers to the enclosure centred at NG 45266 48302. The feature does not appear on the Ordnance Survey mapping until 1966. <2><3>
