About 200m S of the line of power pylons on the E side of a low narrow ridge at about 53m OD are the ruinous remains of two stone-built shielings. The northernmost is circular and measures 3.8m in diameter over walls form 0.8m to 1.2m wide. A possible entrance lies on the W side. The second shieling lies 1.2m to the SE of the first, measures 6.2m by 3.8m and is aligned NW-SE. The walls have spread but a possible entrance lies in the SE end.
