A short length of rubble bank was recorded lying immediately south of a large partially enclosed settlement, measuring 7.0 meters in length by 1.7 meters in width standing up to 0.3 meters high. Although only a relatively short length of this feature is visible it may survive largely as a buried feature. It may either be part of the great western reave or a length of enclosure boundary associated with the nearby stone hut circles sx57se/53/2 and sx57se/53/4. Other details: MPP/133537.
