The monument comprises an unenclosed settlement of prehistoric date, visible as cropmarks on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 50m OD. It consists of a ring-ditch, measuring about 18m in internal diameter, with a probable entrance on its NW arc. To its E is a disc-shaped cropmark measuring about 15m in diameter, and a further group of overlapping disc-shaped cropmarks.

Excavation elsewhere has shown ring-ditches and disc-shaped cropmarks of this type to represent the remains of timber roundhouses of the later prehistoric period. A number of other, less well-defined cropmarks appear to represent the remains of associated structures.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related material may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 130m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance because of its potential to contribute to our understanding of prehistoric settlement and economy. Its importance is increased by its proximity to other monuments of potentially contemporary date.
