Full Description

Three dew ponds embanked on downslope sides with retaining arc of contiguous slabs on the upslope side, set away from the pond edge. The central pond has been concreted and the slab is now fragmentary. The design of the ponds is sufficiently distinctive that they were probably built in the 19th century by the same person and/or on the same holding. (1)
