The monument comprises a depopulated settlement of post-medieval date. The monument is situated within improved farmland at about 280m O.D. and consists of the abandoned farmstead of Baldornie, along with part of its associated infield system.

The farmstead, as depicted on the Ordnance Survey First Edition map (1867), comprises one roofed building, five unroofed buildings, three enclosures and an unroofed circular structure. Three unroofed buildings, the remains of three other unroofed buildings and an unroofed circular structure annotated as a disused kiln are shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1993).

The field system consists of the partially dyked enclosure to the north and west of the farmstead, including a group of nine small enclosures 300m to the west.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described within an area irregular in shape, with maximum dimensions of 260m N-S by 620m E-W, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.

Statement of Scheduling
