Two possible platforms set at the foot of Field Number 805 on the Tithe Map about 15 metres from the river. The western platform is a large sub-circular hollow with the remains of a low wall on the south-east side and a small mound on the south-west. The interior is an uneven area of overgrown scoops and hollows. It is circa 10 metres long by 8 metres wide. The second feature seems to be a small terrace cut into the slope with some stones forming a return at the west end and a small gully cut in front. Another terrace or platform 10 metres long by up to 3 metres wide lies to the south. Leading off this platform to the south-west is a low bank 6-7 metres long by 2 metres wide and 0.5 metres high. The function of these features is unknown but they are probably industrial.
