Description: Stone-built rectilinear sheepfold, 10 by 5.5m. The fold is formed where an old curvilinear 'sod hedge' is crossed by a more recent stone wall which runs east-west and separates improved grassland within Shenvalley Farm (now known as Sound Farm) from what may in the past have been seasonal grazing or outfield: the fold lies within the latter. It may have been used for sorting stock, or alternatively provided shelter from the prevailing wind.
