2. Royal Commission aerial reconnaissance during the 2018 drought on 17th July 2018 recorded the enclosure or moat under parched conditions, and observed a small rectangular annex external to the north side of the enclosure. A prominent circular pond nearby is slightly embanked around its perimeter and may be related to the earthwork.
