The monument comprises a farmstead of medieval or post-medieval date, visible as a series of banks and turf-covered wall footings.

The monument lies in rough grassland at approximately 300m OD. It consists of the footings of three large rectangular buildings and three small buildings with associated enclosures. The large buildings are arranged round a square courtyard, and vary in size from around 25m by 6m to around 13m by 4m.

The other buildings lie on the S side of the courtyard and vary in size from about 8m by 2m to 6m by 2m. The remains represent a small farmstead of medieval or later date. Around the farm are the remains of contemporary rig and furrow cultivation; a sample of this is included in the scheduling.

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, measuring 260m N-S and a maximum of 230m E-W, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
