Summary:Vis=20/7/1988 (rchm) set in 1.2ha of deep streamworking channels, on a steep se moorland slope is a rectangular tinners hut. It measures 5.4m nw-se and 2.3m ne-sw, internally. The crude boulder walls are at maximum, 0.8m high and 0.8m wide. The ne wall appears to be cut into a pile of tinworking debris to a depth of 0.5m. Two upright granite slabs 0.4m high divide the building into two rooms, 2.3m by 2.3m at the nw end and 3.1 by 2.3m in the se. Access is gained to the se room via a central entrance in the sw wall. The nw rom is partially filled by collapsed wall material and there is a possible fireplace in the nw wall partly concealed by debris (nmr citing probert).
