Full Description

This feature consisted of a pile of large stones measuring up to c.1m in size situated in a depression with a diameter of 6-8m, flanked by two short, parallel banks on the north-east and south-west measuring c.4-5m long, 1.5m wide and 0.8m high. It seems most likely that the feature is the remains of a building associated with the 19th century mine working in the area. [1]
