Approach this site from the A171 to Castleton Road.
A track leads down to the enclosure.
The structure is roughly rectangular 26m x 40m and faces west overlooking Commondale Beck and Moor.
It is a banked enclosure with a shallow ditch.
Within the enclosure on the North West end is a circular depression approx 4m across.
20m to the north is a row of stones ? ancient field boundary with another row running off at right angles. Two large stones mark the corners.
