30 plus 12 yds long.
The C19 continuation is stepped and ramped down from the above and forms a high
rubble retaining wall about 70 yds long to an immense (and now overgrown) rockery
made from gigantic rocks. At the south-east corner a wild-looking grotto of 2
chambers formed of this material.
Wall retained at south end in rubble and at north end in coursed rubble about 25 yds
