NH 836 711. An area of about two hectares of heather-covered stone-free ground. Three clearance heaps, about 4m across, occur together with smaller examples. A distinct lynchet runs along NE side of area. These cultivation remains are more indicative of a prehistoric rather than a medieval or post-medieval date.
