The monument comprises the remains of a prehistoric roundhouse, visible as a cropmark on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland at about 15m OD, some 200m SSW of Netherton. From the air it appears as a circular cropmark, about 20m in diameter, with a clearly defined edge. When excavated, circular cropmarks of this type have been found to comprise the remains of prehistoric timber roundhouses, dating from sometime in the second half of the first millennium BC to the first half of the first millennium AD (c.500 BC - AD 500).

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 circular with a diameter of 40m as marked on the accompanying map.
