The monument comprises the remains of an enclosed settlement which dates to the Late Bronze Age (1200BC-800BC) or Iron Age (800BC-AD400).

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 70m above sea level. It comprises a sub-circular prehistoric settlement approximately 90m northeast-southwest by 80m across. It is enclosed by a single ditch between 5m and 8m wide, with an entrance on the east-northeast side. A dark, sub-circular cropmark around 40m in diameter, located slightly off-centre within the enclosure, is likely to indicate the survival of archaeological deposits or structures.

The scheduled area is irregular. It includes the remains described above and an area around within which evidence relating to the monument's construction, use and abandonment is expected to survive, as shown in red on the accompanying map. The above ground elements of all  modern post and wire fencing are specifically excluded from the schedule to allow for their maintenance.
