A tinner's cache lies on the east bank of an un-named tributary stream of the West Dart River, just below the confluence of two un-named streams at SX 60316 78941. Two large earthfast boulders make up the northern side; the remaining walls are constructed from coursed granite moorstone, 0.5 metres high and 0.4 metres wide. The structure measures 1.5 metres north-south and 1.7 metres. A possible entrance lies in the southern wall close to the south-eastern corner. It lies within an area of streamworks (citing Riley, H. M., 23/09/1994, Royal Commission on the Historic Monuments Field Investigation).
