Full Description

Small hut, approximately 3.5m x 2.5m and 3m high. Predominantly constructed of blue brick, laid in even courses; it has a pitched roof with blue slates. The walls enclose a single room with, possibly an original, bench and fireplace. However, a chimney can be seen on the eastern side of the structure in photographs. There is a patch on the wall where different bricks have been used to fill in the hole after the chimney was removed, or it collapsed.
