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

The monument is situated in arable farmland on the northern side of a terrace at about 200m O.D. The enclosure is sub-rectangular and measures c. 50m NW-SE by at least 30m transversely. It is defined by a curvilinear ditch, measuring about 2.5m wide, on the NW and NE sides. The position of an entrance break in the ditch is apparent on the NW side. The southern perimeter of the enclosure is not visible as a cropmark due to a change in landuse, but it is likely to continue beyond the limits of the cropmark.

Enclosures of this type have a longevity of use, dating from the later Bronze Age to the Medieval period.

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 irregular in shape, measuring 100m E-W by 65m N-S as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
