History

Probably C18 rootclamp.

Exterior

Built into rising ground to the E of the house at Dolgau and now flanked by rubble walling enclosing the garden; built of mortared rubble and boulders, with walls raking inwards to form a domed roof. Entry to the rootclamp faces the garden to the W, a single narrow doorway with large stone lintel; there is another long slab of stone above the doorway that may denote the position of an earlier roofline. To the rear of the entrance elevation the domed roof is grassed over and tapers back to an exposed rear wall with flat stone slab coping.

Interior

The interior was not inspected at the time of the survey.

Reasons for Listing
