The monument is an enclosure defined by the cropmarks of ditches visible on oblique aerial photographs. It is located in arable farmland at around 30m OD on a restricted area of lighter, better drained soil.

The enclosure ditch measures about 1m wide on the S and about 3m wide on the N. The area enclosed by the ditch measures approximately 30m in diameter. On the SSE side, the exact position of the ditch is indistinct in the aerial photographs. Where clearly visible, the ditch appears to be uninterrupted. No certain entranceway can be identified although the probability is that it is located on the SSE side. Immediately inside the ditch around the N half of the enclosure, a light coloured band runs through the crop concentric to and inside of the ditch. This enhanced parching feature measures approximately 2m in width and may indicate the location of the ploughed-out remains of a rampart. Within the enclosure, a number of dark cropmark features may mark the position of internal features. On the NNW and SW sides of the enclosure a more extensive faint penannular parching mark may represent the trace of an outer ditch, although not one that was laid concentric to the more obvious enclosure. If correctly identified then at its greatest extent the outermost line extends the area enclosed to one measuring 55m WNW by 40m NNE. Enclosed settlements of this type are characteristic of the Iron Age.

The area to be scheduled is a circle of 70m diameter to include the inner and outer ditch lines and an area around in which evidence relating to the use of the monument may survive, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
