Full description

Ashbrook, K., 1978, Untitled Source (Site Visit). SDV167443.

One hut is visible on the east side of the pound in the portion to the north of the boundary wall, but it is possible that there are traces of other huts in the wood.

Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division, 1980, SX56SE133 (Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division Card). SDV167444.

Remains of an enclosed hut circle are situated on the north east side of a modern field wall. The hut is of Type 2, much robbed, with an internal diameter of 4.7 meters and double-faced walling on the upper side, 1.3 meters wide, just protruding through the turf.
