Site visited on 25th August 1950. Enclosure 'H'. A low bank of small granite stones, much overgrown and very irregular in course. The course in places is obvious but the condition poor. It embraces six hut circles.
Field Investigation on 4th August 1980. The walling forms plots of varied plan and size (from 120 square metres
to 120 square metres). In some instances walling continues through the
clitter, in others it ends on dense patches. There seems to have
been no real attempt at clearace,
