The monument to be scheduled consists of the remains of a farmstead that may be of medieval date.

The farmstead measures 43m from NE to SW by 33m transversely and is defined by a bank 3m wide and 0.5m high. There are gaps in the SE angle of this enclosure which may indicate the location of former entrances. A natural gully crosses the farmstead from NNW to SSE and on either side of it are traces of buildings.

The area to be scheduled is irregular and measures a maximum of 80m from E to W by 60m from N to S as indicated in red on the accompanying map extract.
