The monument comprises a souterrain of prehistoric date, visible as a cropmark on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 120m OD. It comprises a single curved souterrain measuring about 30m in length by about 4m in breadth. Souterrains are semi-subterranean structures generally regarded as having been used for storage in later prehistory. They were generally associated with above-ground domestic buildings, the remains of which may be expected to survive in the immediate vicinity.

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, measuring 70m in diameter, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
