Full Description

A possible engine house lies at the E end of the site near the cliff edge, close to the metal boundary fence. A platform has been created but cutting into the steep slope and the spoil used to create a terrace. The W end of the concrete hut base had three plinths with metal fixings which suggests an engine. The rest of the building was covered in gorse and further investigation was impossible.
