Visited 18/08/2019. The wall was visible cutting across the path (photo taken) but then disappears into dense 100% bracken inundation. Unable to locate the hut because the bracken was too thick to negotiate

Visited 18/08/2019. Photo showing the visible wall cutting the path with dense bracken behind. Looking from the west towards the east
