The monument comprises a hut circle of prehistoric date, visible as turf-covered wall footings.

The monument lies in rough pasture at around 175m OD. It comprises a hut circle measuring about 6.5m in internal diameter. The walls survive as a stony bank measuring about 1.8m wide by about 0.2m in height. Hut circles such as this are characteristic of Bronze and Iron Age settlement sites and represent the remains of timber-roofed roundhouses.

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 35m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
