Full description

Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division, 1953, SX78SW21 (Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division Card). SDV345556.

Pound; possibly Medieval in date, built entirely of massive granite blocks of uneven shape roughly mortared. The tops of the four walls are broken and the south wall has been roughly breached to form a central entrance. The original entrance is on the east side and is flanked by two tall roughly cut granite posts.

This enclosure was considered for designation as a Scheduled Ancient Monument during the Monument Protection Programme. The programme ended before the entire list of sites was successfully scheduled so this is included on a local list of Nationally Important Sites.
