(ii) Round hut, 80 yds. N.W. of (i), 16 ft. in diameter, forming a shelf in ground falling to the S. The hut wall is preserved as a bank of earth and stones, up to 3 ft. high, with no visible facing. There is an entrance 5 ft. wide on the E. SH 34634318.
(iii) From the N.W. side of (ii) a field wall runs N.W. for 18 ft. to an oval depression 23 ft. by 18 ft., possibly the site of another hut. Hollows to the N.W. may indicate the sites of further round huts, though some of them seem to be stone quarries.
