"Round pound, near batworthy, a single hut with double walls enclosed in a circular pound, entered from a droveway from the nw, which is part of the kestor field system. There are 4 radial walls inserted in the pound in medieval times. Excavation has showed that this was a metal workshop, of early iron age date.".
