Field Visit (22 April 1997 - 22 April 1997)

The remains of a house platform c8m by c4m aligned NE/SW lies c6m S of the road. A similar feature may lie c4m to the S but is even less well-defined. Some 7m to the E, the remains of a turf dyke c0.6m wide and c0.2m high can be partially seen running S for a distance of c26m. There is light evidence for cultivation to the E of the dyke.
