A platform, approximately 35 metres square, within a larger triangular terrace cut into the hillside, is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs from 1946 and on images derived from Lidar data captured in 2007. It may be a garden feature, or possibly a platform for an earlier building, associated with Clovelly Court, itself sited approximately 150 metres to the south. No buildings or boundaries are depicted in this location on the 1840 Tithe map and it is probable that the platform pre-dates the mid-nineteenth century.
