Full description


On the s side of the farmyard is a single roomed outbuilding with a n facing doorway. The interior of this structure measures 6.1m by 3.3m. A band of rushes around the outer edge of the upper half of the building may represent a drainage gully which now survives as a buried feature. A gap in the farmyard wall immediately e of this outbuilding may represent an original entrance. This settlement lies within a contemporary field system which survives largely to the s + e. A second long house forming part of this settlement lies 40m to the e (mpp).
