The monument comprises a souterrain and associated features of prehistoric date, visible as a cropmark on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 15m OD. It comprises a souterrain represented by a curving cropmark, measuring 10m-12m in length. The souterrain tapers at its E end. A white 'halo' around the souterrain appears to indicate the presence of stone walls. Souterrains are semi-subterranean, passage-like structures, generally thought to have been used for storage in later prehistory.

There are a number of indistinct cropmarks in the immediate vicinity, including at least two circular ditches which appear to represent the remains of associated structures.

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 65m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
