The monument comprises the remains of a scooped settlement of the

Iron Age, some 2000 to 2500 years old. The settlement is formed of

two contiguous enclosures, the eastern of which measures 46m N-S by

17m transversely, with a small scooped court at the S end. The

western enclosure measures 34.5m N-S by 20m transversely; a slightly scooped court occupies the lower half. The enclosure walls are built

of stone, now largely turf covered. A modern field dyke crosses the site; its fabric above ground level is specifically excluded from the scheduling. The area to be scheduled measures 80m in diameter, to include the settlement and an area around it in which traces of activities associated with its use may survive, as marked in red on

the attached map.
