Unenclosed hut circle at SX 58456341. A semi-circle of internal facing slabs, approximately 5.0 metres in diameter and 0.2 metres high, are all that remain of this robbed hut circle.

The Scheduling appears to refer to the same hut as the 2002 survey but the locations do not match and the Schedule description states it lies south-west of the western enclosure. The 2002 survey places the hut 25.5 metres to the north-west of the scheduled area, although neither can be seen on the aerial photographs.
