Description

The monument comprises the remains of an unenclosed settlement of prehistoric date represented by cropmarks visible on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 30-35m OD. In the W part of the site lie the remains of a souterrain measuring some 12m in length by 2m in width. Souterrains were semi-underground cellars attached to above-ground settlements during the Iron Age. They are generally thought to have been used for storage. To the N and E of the souterrain are three dark circular cropmarks which represent the remains of associated timber roundhouses, each measuring some 10-12m in diameter.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the cropmark remains described above and an area around them in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is a quadrilateral with maximum dimensions of 100m NW-SE by 80m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
