Site Visited on 12th April 1995. Hut circle at SX57656422 attached to a length of boundary wall forming part of agglomerated enclosure. Survives as a bank of earth and stone surrounding a circular internal area. The relationship of the hut to the enclosure wall is unclear but it may be attached to the outer face of the enclosure. The building is of the simple plan, coursed wall and rubble bank walling type. Interior measures 5.7 metres in diameter and is defined by a 1.9 metre wide wall standing up to 0.6 metres high. A south-south-east facing gap in the surrounding wall may represent an original doorway.

Sub-circular structure set along line of and lying mostly outside enclosure 70a. Relationship with enclosure is unclear as wall is broken on either side of hut circle. Consists of a turf-covered bank containing a few inner facing slabs and 3 large orthostats on inner and outer faces. Wall is highest in north-west quadrant where it seems to be constructed of coursed masonry. Gap, 0.60 metres wide, in south-east may indicate an entrance, external to enclosure. Possible outwork is indicated by 2 closely set walls attached to outer face of west side. This may be connected with entrance to enclosure. Internal dimensions 5 metres by 3.5 metres; height 0.6 metres in north-west and 0.2 metres in south-east.
