The monument comprises an enclosed settlement of prehistoric date, visible as a series of cropmarks on oblique aerial photographs. The monument is being re-scheduled in order to clarify the extent of the protected area.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 100m OD. It comprises an oval, ditched enclosure, measuring about 60m NW-SE by 50m within a ditch some 3-4m in maximum width. There appears to be a narrow entrance on the SE. Within the enclosure, and concentric with the ditch, is a palisade trench measuring about 50m NW-SE by at least 30m. A palisade is a timber fence of closely spaced posts set into a continuous narrow trench; in this case it is likely that the palisade would have served to revet the rampart which accompanied the ditch. Enclosed settlements such as this are characteristic of the first millennium BC.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area around them within which associated deposits may be expected to be found. It is circular with a diameter of 80m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
