Description

Rectangular feature 13m x 3-4m aligned E-W along N facing slopes. Consists of a scarp on the upslope side with two eroded pits, and a bank, presumably of upcast on the N side. The western ‘pit’ is relatively shallow and could have been a platform, while the other is more deeply sunk

Function unclear. E part resembles opencast workings while the W end could be a building platform.
