'Structure L' the wall at the southern corner of the tennis court to the south of Gomerock. A fallen tree-trunk lies over the break of slope between the level terrace surface and the slope to the southwest. A small section of stone wall aligned notheast to southwest survives on this slope, perched on a level outcrop of rock which falls away with the slope to the southwest. The northeast end of the wall disappears beneath the fallen trunk; to the southwest the wall reaches its maximum surviving height of 1.2 metres at a faced end. The wall, 0.75 metres wide, is visible over a 1.7 metre length and appears to be of dry-stone construction. Other details: Figures 10-11.
