The monument comprises the remains of a large enclosed settlement and adjacent smaller enclosure of prehistoric date, both visible on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland between around 20-30m OD. It comprises a roughly oval enclosure some 70m NW-SE by about 90m NE-SW, with a ditch some 2m wide. Darker patches inside the enclosure may indicate the remains of former domestic structures. Some 5m to the NE is a second enclosure some 20m in diameter, either representing the remains of a small enclosed settlement or of a former timber roundhouses.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the enclosures and an area around them in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 140m as marked in red on the accompanying map and excludes the above-ground structure of the electricity tower which stands within this area.
