National Monument Record, 2017, Pastscape, 440767, SX58SW47 (Website). SDV359964.

Remains of a Post Medieval building, possibly 18th or early 19th century in date and associated with nearby tin streamworks, is situated above the right bank of the Willsworthy Brook opposite the site of Redford Farm. Archaeological field surveys in 1998 and 2001 recorded a rectangular building measuring internally 11.1 metres by 4.6 metres with turf-covered drystone walls up to 0.8 metres high. The single entrance is central to the east side and the level interior has two divisions.
The building is probably Medieval and either associated with the nearby tin-streaming which extends for 700 metres along the valley and is centred at SX53818375, or, the adjacent fields, one of the low banks of which stops either side of the building.
