In 1979 Selkirk photographed from the air a horseshoe-shaped feature, apparently outlined by an outer ditch which enclosed part of a bank and second (inner) ditch. He interpreted this as a 'Possible Roman Reservoir'. From the photographs alone, however, it bears a distinct resemblance to the Stephen's Hall mine shaft (HER no. 638).
