Agglomerated enclosure with two hut circles inside (area 0.3 hectares). Poor condition. Enclosure consists of an unfinished (no bank on the western side), roughly square enclosure to the south, with two banks running off to the west. Contains two huts, including one attached to the southern side of the enclosure. A secondary (possibly later) enclosure adjoining to the north with indistinct boundary; especially on the west. Appears to have been partially subdivided.
