Vis=16/9/1980 (os) on a south west slope of lynch common at 234m is a levelled earthen platform 8.2m in diameter. As a threshing floor it is exceedingly small and lacks a stone base though this may be attributed to robbing for road metalling. On the platform is an inner concentric bank 6.5m in diameter and 0.1m high with an outer groove which may indicate the position of former walling. This bank is broken on the east which suggests an entrance. Together it would seem more probable that the platform is a stripped out hut circle rather than a threshing floor (os).
