This unenclosed platform settlement at about 270m OD is generally as described.

Hut 'G' is somewhat isolated from, and of differing construction and setting to platforms A - F; it may not be contemporary although in appearance it is likely to be prehistoric. The recent excavation (4) of platform 'A' remains open, but the outline of 'E' has been largely destroyed by the previous excavations (1, 2). The interior of 'F' appears to be only superficially damaged by surrounding forestry. It was not possible to isolate any prehistoric field system from the extensive area of later land usage and occupation that bounds the settlement.

Surveyed at 1:2500.
