measuring 130.0m. x 100.0m. overall. The enclosure walling
averages 2.6m. in thickness and 1.0m. in height, and is constructed
of large boulders with some orthostats on either side.

Inside the enclosure are three 'yards' abutting on the wall; they
measure 20.0m. x 10.0m., x 9.0m. x 9.0m. and 20.0m. x 18.0m.
