A ruined rectangular building set amidst an area of tin streamwork remains, 12 metres west of the River Erme, north of Blatchford Bottom. A probable tinners’ hut or lodge. The walls have been built into a hollow between the waste heaps of the tinwork, reinforced with a dry-stone revetment on three sides and banked on the southern end. The entrance was on the western side. The interior dimensions are 6.0 metres by 2.8 metres.

(23/01/2019) Recorded by experienced volunteer condition assessor. Condition assessed as very good. This site lies alongside the junction of two major cross moor paths, The Abbots Way and the Two Moors Way. Despite this there would appear to be very little damage other than some cracking of cement caused by age.
