3/187 Watch House: Enclosure wall with attached outbuildings GV II

Wall and outbuildings, second quarter of C19. Rubble; outbuildings have Welsh slate roofs. Whinstone rubble with cut dressings; outbuilding roofs Welsh slate. Semi-octagonal plan. Enclosure wall with gabled coping over 2 metres high externally but 1.2 metres internally. Pent outbuilding with boarded doors in western (landward) angles; narrow gateway in centre of west side.

The height of the wall and artificially-raised ground level within, together with the narrow single entrance, suggests that the enclosure was constructed with an eye to defence.
