The monument comprises two hut circles of prehistoric date, visible as a series of turf-covered wall footings.

The monument lies in rough grassland at around 270m OD. It comprises two conjoined hut circles. The first measures approximately 12m in diameter and has walls measuring 1m in thickness. The second measures approximately 9m in diameter and has walls measuring about 3m thick. The circles are associated with low banks. Hut circles are characteristic of Bronze and Iron Age settlement sites and represent the remains of timber-roofed 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 sub-rectangular, measuring 100m W-E by 115m N-S, bounded on the SW and SE by a fence, which is excluded from the present scheduling, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
