HER Number:MDV122894
Name:Ruined building at Erme Pits

Summary

A ruined rectangular structure in the bottom of a deep tinwork gully at Erme Pits is probably the foundations of a building. Although tumbled, the surviving sections of stone walling appear to have been well constructed. Internal dimension are approximately 3.5 metres by 3.6 metres. The walls stand mostly to less than 0.4 metres, though the north-east wall, which is revetted into the base of a steep slope, is over 0.6 metres. The purpose and date of the structure are unknown, but it was quite clearly built sometime after this portion of the tinwork had become exhausted
