The monument comprises an unenclosed settlement of prehistoric date, visible as cropmarks on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 90m OD. It consists of a group of settlement remains, the most prominent of which is a sub-circular ring-ditch with a diameter of approximately 15m. The ditch is about 2m in width. Some 15m to the SSE of the ring ditch is a cluster at least two solid disc-shaped cropmarks, each with a diameter of about 6m. The discs and ring-ditch represent the remains of timber roundhouses.

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 rectangular, measuring 90m from its northernmost point to its southernmost point and 50m from its easternmost point to its westernmost point, defined on the ENE by a fence which is itself excluded from the scheduling, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance because of its potential to contribute to our understanding of prehistoric settlement and economy. Its importance is increased by its proximity to other monuments of potentially contemporary date.
