The monument comprises an enclosed settlement of prehistoric date, visible as a series of cropmarks on oblique aerial photographs. The monument lies in arable farmland at around 165m OD. The enclosure is defined by two concentric circular ditches and measures about 35m in overall diameter.

Although only the enclosure ditches are clearly visible on the aerial photographs, excavation of comparable sites has shown that the remains of former timber houses and related structures are to be expected within and around the enclosure. Enclosed settlements such as this are characteristic of the period from around 500 BC to AD 500.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related material may be expected to be found. It is circular with a diameter of 85m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
