The monument comprises the remains of seven circular houses (hut circles) and a field system of the Bronze Age. Five of the houses are single walled and measure between 11.5m and 15.5m in diameter. Two are of double walled "Dalrulzian" type, and measure c15m and 18m in diameter. The field system is marked by stone clearance heaps, lynchets and occasional field walls.

There are also the slight remains of two rectangular buildings, probably of the pre-improvement period. The area to be scheduled measures 460m SW-NE by 280m transversely, to include the hut circles, the rectangular houses and the field system, and an area around them in which traces of activity associated with their use will survive, as marked in red on the attached map.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as the well preserved remains of a settlement and field system of the Bronze Age which have the potential to increase our knowledge of prehistoric settlement and agriculture. 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.
