Settlement consisting of several joined field enclosures, with at least eight associated hut circles, all in a fragmentary condition. The enclosed areas are bounded on the north of a newtake wall, which has been largely constructed from the wall material from the huts and enclosures. Most of the hut circles are clustered near the centre of the settlement and are generally built against field walls. The most southerly field has no obvious circles attached to it and incomplete walls. Other details: Map 52, 5.
