The monument lies in arable farmland at around 25m OD. It comprises an unenclosed settlement consisting of the remains of at least 4 former domestic structures represented by dark disc-shaped cropmarks. A group of 3 of these lies on the E part of the site; all are approximately 10-12m in diameter. To the WSW is a fourth, of similar dimensions. There are a number of other prehistoric domestic sites represented by traces visible on aerial photographs in the surrounding area.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the cropmarks and an area around them in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is sub-rectangular with maximum dimensions of 110m ENE-WSW by 60m as marked in red on the accompanying map .
