The monument comprises a depopulated settlement of post-medieval date.

The monument lies in rough moorland at about 420m O.D. It is depicted on the Ordnance Survey First Edition map (1867) as an unnamed and abandoned township, comprising eleven unroofed buildings, three enclosures and a head-dyke. Seventeen unroofed buildings, a corn-drying kiln and a more extensive head-dyke are shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1973). One building on the NW edge of the settlement, at NN 9310 6703, can be identified as a two-compartment byre-house, with a drain in its ESE end. The kiln is on the SE edge of the settlement, set apart from the other buildings at NN 9315 6696. The remains vary from completely grass covered walls measuring c. 0.3 high to drystone walls c. 0.8m high and range from c. 5-28m in length by 2-3m in width.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described along with the area enclosed by the head-dyke. It is irregular in shape, measuring about 840m NE-SW by 480m NW-SE, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
