A sub-circular, prehistoric enclosure, on the lower southern slopes of Stall Down; part of a large concentration of huts and enclosures spread across this location. The walls of the enclosure and huts may have been robbed of larger stone, leaving only smaller stones in situ or displaced, within a turf covered spread bank up to 3.3 metres wide or, in places, a circa 0.5 metre high scarp, within which fragments of wall faces survive. The clear interior covers an area of 0.06 hectares and a narrow breach on the south-west corner is a likely location for the entrance. A hut circle previously recorded as built into the exterior of the south wall, survives only as a crescent shaped kink in the line of the wall.
