A possible medieval or later tinner's hut associated with Brim Brook Streamworks. Archaeological field surveys in 1993 and 2004 found it to be one of three such buildings along the Brim Brook section of steamworks. It is a poorly preserved rectangular building, aligned approximately north-south and situated in a boggy area of tinworking on the east side of Brim Brook. The walls are approximately 0.8 metre thick and survive to a maximum height of 0.7metre. The internal dimensions are approximately 5.3 metres by 2 metres. A disturbed entrance one metre wide is located in the eastern wall.
