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

The monument is situated in arable farmland between 30-40m O.D. The monument comprises two probable round houses, around 12m in diameter and 20m apart; one house certainly has a souterrain (an underground structure) emerging from it.

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 80m, to enclose the visible marks and an area around them in which related features are likely to survive, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.

The trunk drain that runs through the northern side of the scheduled area and the ground immediately above it and up to 2m on either side of it are specifiucally excluded from the scheduling, to permit maintenance.
