Site visited on 26th August 1966. Presumed site of Lulworth farm. Track leads from modern Shaugh-Cadover road to disused wall forming a long narrow field leading to a wide area. Area of disturbed land and granite trough visible as is a three-sided structure indicating the possible remains of a barn. It is probable that this is the site of Lulworth as there are no other possible sites in the area.
