Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as the well preserved remains of two dissimilar house types which have the potential to increase our knowledge of prehistoric settlement. They are of particular importance because of the proximity of other monuments of similar date; taken together they have the potential to enhance considerably our understanding of the development and organisation of the prehistoric landscape.
