A shieling noted during a DBA and walkover survey by C Dagg in 2007 in advance of a woodland creation scheme. It was uncertain what this entry (<1>) refered to, as this is within the township where there could have been any number of small structures contemporary with the main buildings. There is a small structure to the east of the kiln barn which may have been a shieling pre-dating the permanent settlement. <2>
