The monument comprises a group of hut circles and associated features of prehistoric date surviving as a series of earthworks.

The monument lies in moorland at around 360m OD. It comprises three well-preserved hut circles and a series of associated field banks and small cairns. The remains form the best preserved part of a larger group of hut circles, several of which now lie under forestry.

The most clearly visible hut circle lies towards the SE of the site and measures some 13m in diameter, with turf-covered walls some 2m wide. To the NW of this lies a double-walled hut circle, clipped on its SW arc by a much later trackway. A rather less obvious hut circle, about 11m in diameter, occupies a low rise some 50m to the N.

The area to be scheduled comprises the remains described above and an area around them within which associated deposits may be expected to survive. It is irregular on plan with maximum dimensions of 150m between its northernmost and southernmost points, and 120m between its easternmost and westernmost points, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
