Foundations of building and possible pond identified by Dr. T. C. Welsh at SK13667362. He suggests it may be an industrially related building / platform connected with mining and / or a water-based activity. He draws attention to the curious off-axis position of the structure within an enclosure (pond?) on the valley floor. The structure is c. 30m long. (1)
