The spoil-heap occupies a single plot, is broadly rectilinear in extent and measures approximately 125m in length by 115m in width. It appears to be first depicted here on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of between the 1880’s-90’s and is also depicted on the 2016 Ordnance Survey MasterMap, suggesting the earthworks are extant. The spoil heap is likely associated with Tinhay Quarry to the immediate north.
