Remains of one and a half walls of a small building in the north-west corner of the field. The structure was built up against the fieldbank and the substantial return at the east end survives to 2.3 metres long by 1.2 metres high by 1.3 metres wide. The rear wall is stone revetted. The west end has not survived but the structure may have been 5-6 metres long and just over 2 metres wide. It is likely to be of Medieval or Post-medieval date but nothing is shown on historic maps. Map object partly based on this source.

Not shown on modern mapping although the western corner of the field would indicate the location. Map object partly based on this source.
