Full description

Edwards, C., 1979, An archaeological survey of an area surrounding Hemerdon Ball (Report - Survey). SDV337241.

Site visited on 9th July 1979. The walls of a small building stand in an area of Medieval tin streaming known as the pits at SX56145951. It is logical to assume that it was associated with tin streaming. Too small to have served as a blowing or dwelling house it may have been a storehouse. Building length 3 metres by 2 metres wide and up to 1.5 metres high.
