A building was recorded here as part of an archaeological desktop and walkover survey before a new water main was laid in the area. It is marked as roofed with an enclosing wallon the 1st and 2nd edition OS maps (1870s and 1906). the latest OS map depicts the structure as being roofless. The building is 5m x 9m, with walls up to 0.2m high and 0.4m wide. There is an entrance to the S. The wall of an enclosure can be seen to the N and E.
