The monument comprises two adjacent settlement enclosures, visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs.

The monument consists of two linear cropmarks, orientated NE-SW, about 1-2m wide, running parallel to each other, about 5-10m apart. The northern cropmark forms three sides of a rectangle 30m long, with curved corners and ends approximately 15m long. The southern cropmark is L-shaped, and is about 45m long, curving out at a rough right angle at the SW end, and continuing SE by about 15m.

The area to be scheduled comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related material may be expected to be found. It is rectangular, measuring 75m NNE-SSW by 60m transversely. The area is marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
