(Visited 21/04/2019) A very difficult section of the settlement to locate features within; there are a number of previously non recorded conjoined huts close together in a near line.
This feature is distinct conjoined huts, rather than being one hut divided into rooms.
Northern hut (SX 56450 71650). There is a 1.0 metres by 0.5 metre pit (possibly army related) in the centre. Photographed.
Southern hut (SX 56452 71647). Gorse cover noted, as well as livestock / human tracks. Photographed.
