Hut 9. A start was made in excavating the e part of this hut, but thunderstorms caused the abandonment of the work. The small hut had been made from the ruins of the larger one. One piece of prehistoric pottery and a flint flake found.

Hut 9 which seems to be attached to the perimeter wall was not completely excavated. In any case, half of it had been demolished to provide material for Hut 10, a crudely built structure probably of post medieval date.
