The monument is a settlement and field system of the Later Bronze Age or Iron Age some 2000 to 3000 years old, comprising three circular house stances, measuring between 13m and 15m in diameter. Around and between the circles lies the contemporary field system, marked by numerous well defined clearance cairns. An area measuring 235m (NNW-SSE) x 170m is proposed for scheduling, to include the remains of the three stances, the field system, and an area around the house stances in which remains of activity associated with their occupation and use is likely to survive.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as a well preserved small settlement or farmstead associated with a contemporary field system; both have the potential to enhance our understanding of prehistoric settlement and agricultural practices.
