From Bard's Castle (NG82NE 1) "the site of another vitrified fort was pointed out to me in the direction of Ardelve (NG 87 26), but I was unable to verify this fact, not having time to visit the locality" (T Wallace 1898).

Cotton (M A Cotton 1954) has traced no more references to this site.

T Wallace 1897 and 1898; M A Cotton 1954.

No trace.

Visited by OS (N K B) 27 September 1966.
