The monument is a settlement of the Later Bronze Age or Iron Age some 2000 to 3000 years old. It comprises four scoops, each occupied by the remains of a circular stone house stance. The four stances lie in a line down the slope, and range in diameter from 11m to 12.5m. Immediately to the N of the group lies a half circle, which may represent the NE half of another house stance. A small area of contemporary agricultural remains, in the form of lynchets and clearance heaps surround the settlement. An area measuring 150m (WSW-ENE) by 100m transversely is proposed for scheduling, to include the four certain house stances, the possible fifth stance, a sample of the contemporary cultivation remains and an area around in which traces of ancillary activities will survive.

Statement of Scheduling

The four house stances are of national importance because of their well preserved field characteristics. It is likely that this unenclosed settlement on platforms represents occupation of the Later Bronze Age, comparable perhaps to the Unenclosed Platform Settlements found in the Border counties. Archaeological investigation would provide information of importance about the way of life of the inhabitants. The fifth house stance is of importance because it may represent an earlier phase of occupation. The cultivation remains are of national importance because they have the potential to increase our understanding of prehistoric agricultural practices.
