The monument is a settlement of the Later Bronze Age or Iron Age some 2000 to 3000 years old comprising the remains of three circular house stances set on artificial scoops dug into the hillside. They measure from 9m to 11m in diameter between wall centres. Below the settlement are the remains of a contemporary field system, comprising banks, lynchets and clearance heaps.

An area measuring 100m (NE-SW) x 100m transversely is proposed for scheduling to include the house stances, the cultivation remains and an area around in which traces of activity associated with the occupation and use of the settlement will survive.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument has very well preserved field characteristics. It is of national importance as a well preserved example of a settlement type more often found in the border counties than in northern areas. The settlement and cultivation remains have the potential to enhance considerably our understanding of prehistoric settlement and agricultural practices. The monument is of particular importance because of the similar settlement close by to the S; comparison of the two would be of great value.
