The character of the field walls vary. One internal boundary survives as a wall formed by large edge set orthostats standing 1 metre high. Around the edge the wall consists of an internal bank revetted on the outside by either edge set orthostats or coursed drystone walling up to 1.2 metres. The outer wall underlies dumps from two shafts but overlies earlier mining activity.
